I've got Lilac Fever

It's May 5 and my lilacs have been in bloom full force for a week, strangely early!

But its time to cut some lilacs and bring them inside for a profusion of fragrance. I threw together this lilac arrangement on a shoot with photographer Jim Westphalen at the Shelburne Museum in Vt.

The antique buckets adds a lot to its charm. Wood or metal pails make perfect containers for armfuls of lilacs.

Lilac tip:
Cut them early in the morning, split the woody ends so they will absorb the water faster
