These are really past their prime, but I had to post some anyway. This bouquet came from 3 different bushes, so there are three color variations.
Maybe it's the brevity of lilac season that makes us love them so much. Two weeks, max, of heavenly scents and sights. Maybe if we took a lesson from lilac season and limited Christmas decorations and music to 2 weeks max, we'd not get sick of them.
