"...Has it ever occurred to you, Diana, that there is something not quite...chaste... in the scent of lilac blossoms? Gilbert laughs at such a notion...he loves them...but to me they always seem to be remembering some secret, too-sweet thing."
~ Anne of Ingleside, by Lucy Maude Montgomery
It may be true, but I agree with Gilbert on this one and just love them. The lilacs are just starting to come out now and I went for a walk today to gather them up for our house. I love the way they smell, even if they fade so quickly. I wish I could find a way to make them last.fancy stamping stuff my mom sells, I think I could have made the banner look even better/more aged.
Oh, and you know what one of my favourite flowers to decorate the house with is? Chive blossoms. They have such a lovely punch of colour and I love the contrast of the purple and the green. Plus, they last forever and I never feel bad about picking them from the garden.
Well, that is all for now, folks. The days are marching closer to my due date and I anxiously await this baby's arrival!
