Lilac Season! {Farmhouse Living}

 

Hi Friends ~ I hope your week is going well! It's the season I wait for all year... lilac season! Along with the beautiful and fragrant flowers, comes more sunshine, blue skies, and more daylight! The boys dust off their bikes, and I start working in the vegetable garden again... We're enjoying these gorgeous days and starting to itch for the freedom of summer!

I thought it would be fun to share some images of the lilacs from our yard, photographed in the barn. (I think our sheep, who sleep in one of the barn stalls at night, are enjoying the scent too! :)

This time of year reminds me of a fireworks show's grand finale... Right as one plant finishes flowering, another type bursts open! Our purple lilacs bloom first and then our white lilacs and wisteria bloom next. (I have no idea why our white lilacs bloom later than the purple... If anyone knows, I'd love to hear!)

Cut lilacs are not the longest-lasting blooms, but snipping an inch up each stem and plunging the stem right into sugar water has helped ours last several days indoors.

Do you have lilacs where you live? Which flowers do you most look forward to blooming?

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
