White Lilacs

Single white syringa vulgaris alba  - white lilacs - cut from where they
grew behind my husband's old restaurant in a cute Catskills town!

It's the Catskills' way of saying "sorry for the long winter",
I think, because spring flowers tend to bloom all month,
like a sustained chord.

I'll be sharing this with Kathleen at Faded*Charm for White Wednesday!

These are just as lovely as can be! Lilacs are truly one of my favorite flowers next to the rose. Thanks for the photo, Christie

Oh Sandy, I bet they smell wonderful. They are so pretty & perfect they almost look like silk flowers. How long do they last once you cut them? And you journal that you won is beautiful. ENJOY! Charlene

I looove lilac's, especially the white ones, I use to have a double white lilac, but lost it to some excavating work done on our yard, I was just heart sick over it. Seeing your lovely bouquet has inspired me to start looking for another bush to take it's place! Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs
