The essence of spring is something I long, all year round. I made a promise to myself that I would try to preserve spring as very best I can this year. Whether it be through photography, drying flowers, recipes and most of all, experiments.
Lilacs are one of my absolute favorites. Growing up, we had a large lilac bush at our house in Rosemont. My mother would leave a pair of pruning sheers for who ever wanted to take some home on the way past our house. Now, at my home that my partner and I bought December of 2019, our property came with a few very lovely lilac bushes. TWO colours purple & white!!
I ended up doing a couple different things with the lilac flowers. But let’s start with the most simple, yet lovely “recipe”.
So besides the obvious, I would reccomend giving your lilacs a shake before bringing them inside. The earwigs seem to love hanging out in them. And a good rinse before adding them to your water. Pick your lilacs somewhere that is not near a road/polluted area.
I let my lilac water soak overnight. It is such a subtle, delicate, floral taste.bit is absolutely LOVELY.
1 cup of lilac flowers (no stem)
8 cups of water (or really however much you want, it is a very faint flavor so it will be hard to over do!)
Give a good shake & let sit over night. ♡
Thanks for joining me in today’s post. I hope everyone is staying safe out there and can find some peace with the flowers today ♡
As wedding season is in full bloom, I’ve been inspired to browse some wedding dresses to see what is around this beautiful 2018 summer of love. Now let’s not get too excited. The man of my dreams has not asked me to marry him yet but who knows, perhaps some day soon so there is no harm in preparing yourself and having a little peek! 😉
