paying a visit to those who've entered my Cottage Charm Giveaway. Thanks!
I am swooning over the lilacs and snowballs! It's just too hot here in Georgia. I fell in love with lilacs when we lived in Ohio!

I was just talking to somebody the other day about lilacs....and couldn't remember when they bloomed. The little town I grew up in had lilac bushes up and down the sandy streets. I *loved* them in the mornings when you had to shake the dew off of them before taking them into the house. I now live on the coast and there are no lilac bushes to be found.

You have a pretty blog!

Thanks so much for visiting....yes, it is the rain that keeps us beautiful. Generally, it does rain thru Memorial Day and the Rose Festival so hope that hold true this year, too, 'cause it is cold, too. Love your blog, you are a woman after my own heart!
