The Last of the Lilacs

The Last of the Lilacs


After most of the lilacs have finished blooming, we have a late blooming variety that dazzles us every year from mid to late June.

They border the property along the roadside.

They keep the bees very busy.

They practically overwhelm us with their perfume.

They work wonderfully well as cut flowers.

Here, they are in small vases down the centre of a dining table with a few yellow buttercups mixed in.

I picked them near the end of their bloom cycle and by the next day, most of the flowers had dropped.

Goodbye, you beautiful lilacs, until next year.





Thanks for stopping by.
