But it is spring once more and those precious lilacs are mine- ALL mine! Not only do I intend on some very pretty bouquets in the house but since lilac flowers are edible I will adding the blossoms to salads and topping desserts with them. I might try sugaring them... wouldn't they look pretty on a cake or pie? I've also heard that one can make lilac wine. I'm not a drinker but it might be fun to learn how to make flower wines. Hmmm... lilac tea too.
Its a good thing I'm hosting a ladies bible study tomorrow night. I think I shall be creative with my lilacs and dandelions and see how my foraged treats go over. It will either be a big hit or I'll end up in church discipline. LOL!
My coveted fence line!
A white lilac growing in one of the flower beds. I wish I could bottle up the aroma!
Another lilac type of shrub in another flower bed. This one however lacks any aroma.
A beautiful bonus: A path of dandelions leading back into our forested area. I am a lover of the herb (dandelions are not weeds) and couldn't believe this beautiful path was on my property. God is so good to bless us with this land!
