Gilding Lilies Greeting Cards

Saturday, May 5, 2012


Out in the yard is a tall lilac tree/bush, and at the tippy-top of the tree (where I couldn't reach them) these beautiful lilacs were blooming. I'd sit on the couch and look out the window longing to pick and sniff them. They were mocking me! This went on for a few days. Then one afternoon, my daughter and I were sitting out on the deck, and I told her about how cruel the lilacs were being. She said that if we worked as a team we might be able to get them. She carefully bent the limbs, I reached up high, and together, I was able to get  my hands on these lovelies. I was thrilled! I've been thoroughly enjoying them ever since. The light shining through them is enchanting, and I have taken countless photos. Here are just a few. You can see why I wanted them so badly, right?
