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 ♡
Even though their beauty doesn’t last long, the few days these flowers share their presence is enough to appreciate for a lifetime.
In love with the lupins on our property! There are a few different colours right now but I thought I would just make an appreciation post for each. Loving the purple & white as it is so angelic and delicate! The lupins are giving a real nice pop of colour throughout our overgrown yard.
Our cherry tree is in full bloom, soon to shed it’s beautiful flowers ❤
My sweetheart of a Mum brought these over the other day ♡ These spring flowers are so lovely to wake up to and are quite fragrant, filling the room with love each morning! ♡
