This is one of the bouquets of lilacs I picked last weekend...I took another one about this same size to work. When I got to work I sat it on my counter and when I heard my friend Natasha at her desk I went to pick up the vase to show her the flowers and I knocked over a candy dish and as I tried to catch the candy dish I knocked over the lilacs. I knocked the whole vase right on top of the back of my computer. It looked like my computer was sitting in a lake! Luckily nothing was broken, not even my computer! Gotta love Mondays!!!
Can you believe those chocolate eggs have ZERO calories? Unfortunately, (or should I say fortunately?) I can't eat them because they are fake. I bought a pack of them at Vintage and Vogue last year and then I bought another pack this year. They look so good but I crave chocolate every time I walk by them!
Growing Lilacs in Mild Climates: A lot of people are surprised that I can grow lilacs in California because lilacs usually require cold winters which we do not get here. Luckily there are now low-chill varieties of lilacs available for those of us that live in mild climates. You can read more about them, just click here.
