If any of you have a really beautiful but on the smaller side, blueish/lavender lilac, I just want to take this time to apologize if it came up missing a few dozen blooms in the middle of May.
Here is the story: My dh and I married a year ago in May as I love lilac time. He surprised me by decorating our dinner table with lilacs, by the 100's! Beautiful. I took a spray and pressed it in our bible.
This year on our 1st anniversary, my only request was to have a small sprig of the same lilac to again put in our bible.
Unfortunately, the bush wasn't near bloom time.
When I woke up on the morning of our 1st anniversary, I walked into the kitchen and was greeted by an entire table full of the most beautiful lilacs ever.
Seems he walked a mile down the road at 4 in the morning to lighten up the neighbors bush (I had commented how much I loved the color...very unusual).
So, while I don't encourage thievery in any way....a 12 month bride was made so very happy by those beautiful flowers. And yes, one sprig is in our bible.
Our apologies, really.
