These blooms come from my oldest shrub which was loaded this year and they are so fragrant.
While this darker variety blooms a couple weeks later and seem to last longer on the bush, there are only ever a handful of blooms each year.
I always have bouquets of them in my bedroom where I can enjoy them and their fragrance. I'm not quite done with this area in my newly painted bedroom, but wanted to take a some pics of these lilacs, so I'll just share a few peeks of what I'm working on. I still need to secure the mantel to the wall, hang a couple industrial sconces on either side of the mirror, fill the surround with some wood and find a rug that works in this space....along with convincing my husband we need to rip up the carpet(which btw, I never wanted in the first place!) , but that's probably for another time:-(
So there are a couple of these tufted chairs on either side of the mantel and I love these new pillows from Cat at LiLou House on Etsy. She does a great job with quick and friendly service.
I also have a perfectly aged wood piece with hooks to hang above the trophy.
I'll be sharing the whole room with more pics of the bed which I moved to the other side of this area later this Summer after I finish getting it exactly how I want it along with my living room which is pretty much done and just needs to get photographed so stay tuned for more house progress coming soon:-)
My latest Show in Salem at The Great Junk Hunt was a huge success and I finally have some time to go through those photos which I'll share in my next post and give you a list of a few more venues I'll be selling at this Summer.
Have a wonderful weekend!
