I love lilacs and their sweet scent, they are a natural air freshener. I placed a bunch on my mantel and bookshelf and snapped a few pictures for you to enjoy.
I love the way they look in the diy tin can vase that I made.

Here is a tip to make your blooms last longer:First strip the leaves from the stem. Cut the bottom of the stem off at a 45- degree angle, then slit the bottom of the stem with a sharp knife. This allows the woody stem to take in water. This is a tip I picked up while working in a flower shop. It really works and will make your blooms last a bit longer.
