The Perfume of Lilacs Inspire Me

My lilacs this year are breathtaking…five beautiful large trees brimming with all the shades of lavender, purples, pinks and white that only God good embellish.  How lovely they are in the gardens and how beautiful and aromatic in the home.  They inspire me in color, perfume and design.  This year’s Promise Gardens theme colors were inspired by these shades.

WITH LILACS

I BEG the pardon of these flowers
For bringing them to one whose hair
Alone doth shame, beyond compare,
The sweetest blooms of richest bowers.

I beg the pardon of this maid
For offering them with hand less pure,
A heart less perfect, needing cure
By Love’s own music, softly played
