My lilacs are out and booming today. The air is heavy with their heady sweet smell. This year I do not have as many flower heads. I just read that it is because I did not deadhead the blooms from last year. I was not aware that needed to be done. Seems like an awful lot of work and then what would you do with a lilac tree that is tall?
The milk glass vase was my Grandmother's and is one of my treasures. I think it is such a pretty color and now that vintage is all the rage I like to use it frequently for small flower arrangements.
I just love lilacs as does Mister T. Oh of course this is my Mister T statue. Mister T is healing well but is self conscience and does not want his picture taken till he heals up. I think he looks like he had a loosing fight with a stapler as many of the dog bites look like puncture wounds. His tail stump is healing and for a while last night I took his collar off so his neck could have a rest. He went right to licking the wounds so back on it went.
