I took a walk in the neighborhood this weekend and noticed a house that has been empty for years with white lilacs growing over the fence. I went home for my basket and filled it with flowers. I have two purple lilacs, but the white ones I have never been interested in. I’m kind of a purple girl really, and the purple ones really caught my eye. I realized I missed the elegant beauty of white lilacs.
Early Sunday morning, I got up and lit the candles and turned Pandora radio on to soft instrumental music. The entire house seemed to be filled with peace from the lovely white bouquets scattered around the dining room. I instantly fell head over heels in love with these white beauties.
I have decided I simply must have one of these elegant trees in my yard. Before I got home, I decided on another must have. This is a photo of my neighbors house and her wisteria that is growing over her porch.
The wisteria blooms are kind of on the end of their cycle, but is this not the sweetest thing you have ever seen? It is a darling old house, and this just makes it even more sweet. We have two old homes on Cottage Avenue with wisteria growing over the porch.
But the first house on cottage, my little green house, the climbing old fashioned roses are starting to bloom over the arbor. Stop back by next Monday and I bet I will have some photos for you, in the meantime, I will leave you with one more mosaic of of the flowers around my neighborhood.
Have you been swooning over your neighbors flowers and getting ideas for your own dream garden or what you would like to add to yours?
