White lilacs_Staats-9590We’re fortunate to have both purple and white lilacs surrounding our yard.  With some recent rain and higher humidity levels the air has been heavy with the sweet smell of the lilacs.  Knowing how short-lived their blossoms are, I cut some and brought into the house.  This old pink hobnail glass pitcher that had been my mother’s seems the perfect vessel to hold them and let them release their fragrance throughout the house.
