Lilac {Envy}

I am green with envy.  So many of my Northern friends have been posting lovely pictures of the prettiest lilacs I have ever seen.  Yep!  I have been so, so jealous because most lilac varieties  do not grow well here in Alabama. While I was at the market today, guess what I found?

I found these pretty white lilacs.  They made me smile, and I thought of all the pretty lilac posts y'all have shared with me.  They have truly made me happy seeing all of your gorgeous lilac photos.

I put them on our kitchen table, and I set it all girly.  Mr. Art@Home puts up with a lot out of me.  He is living in a Barbie world around here, poor guy.

I am joining Courtney's Feathered Nest Friday @ French Country Cottage, and Fresh-Cut Fridays @ Rose Vignettes.

Until next time...

Blessings!

  5. Oh Ricki Sweetie...
    I love these beautiful white lilacs. The scent drew me right on in. So fragrant and beautiful on your table setting. I love a girlie feminine table. DH never complains either, as long as there is something on his dinner plate.

    I haven't seen any lilacs out here in the valley. I don't even know if they would grow out here.

    (I am happy to have a patio tomato plant with 9 tomatoes on board. Imagine that? It cost more to water the darn thing than it would to buy them at the store. I just wanted to prove something to myself.)

    Have a beautiful Friday sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

    I'm so happy to see lilac's at your table. And they look PERFECT..too bad they are so short lived. Enjoy while you can..

  9. Ok! Now I'M JEALOUS! :) Those are fabulous! Our flowers are just about done. And we, of course, never have Lilacs. I keep hoping that my Jacaranda tree will bloom. That's as close as it will get. :)

    Thank you so much for joining if for Fresh-Cut Friday! :)

  15. The table looks great, wonderful colors. I have purple lilacs, but I should have planted them closer to the house so I could see them and smell them!
