No way, no how was I leaving work yesterday without a few blossoms of local lilac. Their fragrance had been calling to me all day long, every time I opened the cooler doors, every time I placed a few in an arrangement.
It had been a long busy day, make that week, but the lilac had my head spinning. I was equally seduced by the new green floribunda cabbage rose sweetly named Eclair. Its price is mind blowing but so is its color.
I quickly filled a mason jar, unwilling to let the lilacs sit without water while we made a quick stop at a book store and Whole Foods. A few sweet peas from Japan also made their into the mix. How do these things happen?
Okay, and maybe one coral charm peony. But who amongst us wouldn't have done the same?
