A Love of Lilacs

I don't know about you, but one of the perks of spring time are the lovely scent of spring blooms such as crabapples, cherry blossoms, and lilacs.

I picked a few for a bouquet, since I rarely have fresh flowers in the house, but the scent is just magic.

Side note: in this "not nearly as great shot" you can see my vintage (Depression era?) cranberry glass vase. It was a yard sale find. My mom used to have one just like it (which was her mother's) up until I accidentally broke it. She was sad about it, but she did not want a replacement (since these pop up in antique shops fairly often, along with a ribbed green variation), since it wasn't the "same". I found this one years later.
