For the past five years I have had to "make do" with gardenias and camellias and moped at the site of photos of lilacs from my friends up north. That is until yesterday when my next door neighbor surprised me with a bouquet of lilacs and irises from her garden. She had been telling me she had a bush on the side of her house, right under her bedroom window, but I hadn't taken her seriously. Lilacs? in Georgia? get out! Well the pictures below show how wrong I was. And the smell? Just as powerful as I remember.
There was no question where they were going to be enjoyed the most. My sitting room! The question was where.
