Easter has always been my favorite holiday. The very meaning of this holiday causes me think about all that I am thankful for. The Sacrifice, the Resurrection of our Lord, And what it means to me as a child of God.
This morning I was doing just that as I peered out my new kitchen window...and thought I would share my view with you through the screen!
Of this ancient lilac bush!
When we first began thinking about where we would move our kitchen during the renovation, it was early May and this bush was in bloom. I was standing at what was a living room window and told my dearest hubby
" I want my sink to be right here! I want to be able to open my window and breathe in the fragrance of my lilacs during the month of May!"
Spring has arrived terribly early this year! And so I am surrounded by my blooms in late March and Early April!
We have had record setting temps. and then, when we go back to our normal temperatures(mid 50s low 60's) and I feel cold!
Tonight we are expecting a freeze and after dinner I am going to run around our garden and cover all the things that have bloomed or budded much too early!
I have decided to let the ancient lilac take care of itself as it has for such a long time. It has probably experienced this at another time in it's long life and knows how to take care of itself!
I did however, bring in baskets of blooms to spread throughout our home this Easter weekend!
Some will go to the cottage...with the view of Tinker in the background!
I filled most of my favorite pitchers with the fragrant blooms!
But this one is my favorite filled with lilacs!
This vintage French postcard was a gift from a dear friend a few years ago...I thought you would enjoy it as well!
Until next time...
I wish each of you a blessed Easter!
