Am I a Pinterest cliche? I don’t even care.
When we took possession of our new house, I saw the flower gardens, sporting dormant tufts of unknown plant variety. For some reason I just imagined green leafy bushes and ground cover… the occasional rose bush. I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to gardening, so I really didn’t know, for instance, that we had a lilac bush! This was a pleasant and sweet smelling surprise. I’m giddy with the thought of fresh flowers in my back yard and I’m anxious to see what other blooms will jump out and surprise me in the months to come.
Today I took a mason jar, gave it a quick coat of primer and dropped in some lilac blooms. Then I fainted from how much I loved it. Then I regained my composure, ran upstairs for my “big” camera and snapped these tasty images.
