The Last of the Lilacs

May 26, 2017

Flower Friday is about the very last bundle of lilacs of the season at Hawthorne. Caretaker Bill had warned us that the unusually warm weather had done a number on the season which just came and went. But TPS was able to gather one last armful for me to play with. They sit on the dining table and you can smell them throughout the house. The enjoyment they are bringing, immense. Upside, we have never been here when the peony bloom. Fingers crossed. The buds are still looking pretty tight but we will hope for lots more warmth and sunshine and maybe they will be dancing for us by next Friday…

A lovely week-end to you. I hope it is a grand one in your world. We are throwing a college graduation party tomorrow for our youngest niece, with friends & family from near and far. The lilacs will be enjoyed by all. Sending love from the Hudson Valley. T2+B
