Farmhouse Flowers (Lilacs)

What a full week! Are you looking forward to the weekend as much as I am? 
(Hope so!)

We've been having a heatwave here in the Seattle area, which has felt like a mini summer! We've spent more time outdoors... our boys playing, taking our dog and new puppy out, and enjoying nature blooming all around us.

One type of flower that I look forward to all year is the lilac. 
They are so fragrant and, to me, epitomize farmhouse charm!




I love using simple containers for vases, like this 
gallon glass jar and white ironstone pitcher...


Here you can see one of our lilac bushes, to the right 
of the entry arbor, in its natural habitat. ;)


The clouds and drizzle moved back in this afternoon, so I am especially grateful to have these fresh blooms inside to enjoy...


I hope you have a wonderful spring weekend, whether skies are sunny or gray...

I'd love to hear what you're up to!
