Lilacs and lost time. This is what I recall, whenever, I think of her. Lilacs and lost time.

The Lilacs are blooming. A favourite blossom, reminding me of lost time and dusty roads, elderly Aunties, climbing roses, and picnics on the lawn.

Lilacs are lovely. Their stems hate to be indoors. You can expect about a week of bloom if you follow these suggestions.

First thing in the morning, cut some long stems. Immediately, place your stems into cold water. These tips will help to preserve the tightness of flower.

I prefer tin buckets or tall glass cylinders to ‘house’ the lilacs. Let the heavenly scent fill a room.

Leave a bouquet on a doorstep.
