I'm not quite sure what I was thinking yesterday ~ climbing on a ladder in a ferocious wind storm to cut some lilacs to bring indoors??? Who knows. Sounds like a recipe for disaster thinking back on it. I'm glad it didn't end up that way.
I'm short on time this morning but before I get going, I thought I'd share with you what I did with the blooms I was so desperate to bring inside:
They became the centerpiece of my spring buffet, mixed in with a few other gardening/antique "doodads" I have acquired. Notice the Smith & Hawken birdbath bought earlier this spring ~ it has never made it outdoors and most likely never will ~ way too pretty!
I could have (should have) waited one more day ~ it has thankfully calmed down quite a bit ~ at least for this morning. I hope to find time to make the rounds and see what's new in bloom, especially if the wind stays down so I can actually photograph flowers without them blowing every which way. You can be sure I'll be back to share my findings with you!
