Simply Sunday: An Ode to Lilacs

It’s been some time since I did a simply Sunday post and today’s post is my Ode to Lilacs ♥

Spring was soo late in coming this year that we actually still have lilacs on the trees here!  I can’t ever remember a time when lilacs have still been around at the end of June!!

With the bumper crop of gorgeous blooms this year (and Lilacs being my favourite ♥ ) it seemed perfect on this Sunday to share some beautiful Lilacs with you.

Enjoy!

I have 4 lovely thoughts, I'd love to hear yours

  1. Excellent pics & post! When we lived in Barrhaven, I picked a bunch of lilacs off some bushes in a city park and gave a big bouquet to our neighbour – you would have thought I brought her a dozen roses! She was battling cancer at the time and it made my day to see her so happy over a simple bouquet. Sadly, she passed away but everytime I see lilacs now, I think of her…..

    1. That is such a beautiful thing to do Beverly and such a lovely memory to have of her <3 I can imagine anyone not being cheered up by beautiful flowers!

  2. Maybe it’s the fact that we share a first name; maybe it’s our shared love of vintage and of painting and recreating furniture. But lilacs are also my favorite, I do believe they are a gift to us for making it through yet another winter! Thanks for these beautiful photos.

    1. 🙂 That is a beautiful way of looking at it Lisa!! We definitely need some rewarding after the winter we had this year… it just never ended!! I am always so happy to find other kindred spirits who love vintage, paint and flowers <3

I'd love to hear what you think...
