Lilac time

I was up early this morning and doing a few rounds of crochet while breakfasting!
Little Thrifty Fox had given me some beautiful thrifted Mohair yarn a while ago and I thought it was time it was turned into something, it's a big granny square knee rug in the making.
While drinking my tea I had to smile..on the coffee table I had laid my crochet, the novel I am reading at the moment ......and beside it a jug of Lilac from the garden.....

...bit of a colour theme happening here!!!

I thought I would look up Lilac in my "The Secret Language of Flowers" book by Samantha Gray that I love and this is what the beautiful pages say.....

..............and these words at the bottom of the page are so lovely aren't they!

my favourite Lilac in the garden, it is really perfumed and such a deep colour.

My daughter gave me this gorgeous old chocolate box and although I can't see a Lilac bush in the garden....I am certain there would have been one!

" The days come and go like muffled and veiled figures sent from a distant friendly place carrying gifts, and if we do not use the gifts they bring, they carry them silently away."

(Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Have a happy week and enjoy the gifts your days bring.
