Lilacs and Mosaics

Happy Weekend Friends!

Hope you are 
surrounded with picnic food
and family this holiday weekend...

Our visit from the kids was last week,
so we are enjoying a quiet weekend
and lots of asparagus!!!

It's been 60 and cloudy, but 
we are relaxed and enjoying
a couple days off!

My lilacs are opening
and I'm thinking about 
moving my bed out under
the bush!

or just gathering 
some bouquets to
enjoy in the house ~
probably a better idea!

(Since the chickens also 
love to hang out under
the lilac bush)...

I wish they would bloom 
all summer long...

I guess I'll have to refer
back to this post after
they're gone :(

Just a reminder:
take time to stop 
and smell the lilacs!!

Happy Mosaic Monday, Friends!

Stunning mosaic! I especially like the asparagus and the lilacs!

Those lilacs are beautiful and I am wishing I had some of that asparagus.

At the lake house, my grandparents had a huge hedge of lilacs, I loved the smell of them. They were always blooming for Memorial Day. Memories.......

I like my lilacs too and moving the bed outside works for me!
There are a few new ones that will bloom all summer sporadically - 'Josee' and 'Bloomerang'. I have both and they are small varieties as they're a cross from the dwarf Korean lilacs.
I'm willing to come and help eat some of your asparagus, a favourite veggie.

beautiful lilacs!! so colorful and dainty looking! Bet they smell good indeed! I don't think they grow here.....

60 degrees isn't too bad of weather for this time of year and where you are at; I remember many a Memorial Day weekend in Montana with it being cool and rainy with hint of snow in the air

seems like you had a good weekend!

Stunning lilacs - I can almost smell them from here. And the asparagus - yummy!

Nancy said...

Love the lilac photos - ours are all but done for the year.

And I messed up big time on our asparagus and forgot all about the patch until it was too late. Doh!

The lilacs are just beginning to blooms here. I love the fragrance and yes it would be nice to bottle it. Seems the chickens appreciate the fragrance or just the shade too. Lovely. V

Have a beautiful lilac filled day!!!

Asparagus and lilacs. Two of my favorite things. We eat a ton of it. Not the lilacs...the asparagus.
