Announcement! Fragrant Lilacs are on the way!
Fragrance is one of the amazing gifts God gives us through flowers. And lilacs are one of the most amazing, and yet elusive. It is very seasonal, ie, the best is not grown in a hothouse, and is subject to the vagaries of the weather.
One of my floral suppliers just reported on their blog: ‘Every now and then the planets align just right to allow something special happen and that is the situation that we have found ourselves in for this Mother’s Day holiday. Lilac is such a beautiful flower and I was just informed by our purchasing team that this is the best they have seen in years and it is currently being fresh cut for Mother’s Day!’
The lilacs we have been seeing so far this spring have been small, expensive and not as fragrant. We have brought it in on request, because that is what we do. And you bet, we are getting these lilacs in, as soon as they are in!
Now we will be able to create our ‘Vintage Chic’ bouquet with lilacs and hydrangea the way we really would like to!(At least with the flowers – we are out of the container, sadly… and have other really cool vases in, to. See… we are really honest, let people know about substitutions… 🙂
And fun blog world happening – I saw the tweet from @Mayesh, followed the link to the blog, called my local rep, who hadn’t heard about them yet, placed an order for when they DO come in. Stay tuned on our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter for an update for when they are in our shop. And yes, the purple text is intentionally in honor of the lilacs. Enjoy!
