Pretty {LILACS}

Last Saturday I went to Union Square Market in Manhattan. Here you can find the best fruit and vegetables from farmers around New York. It won't be a surprise if you see celebrity walking around or picking up some produce. I saw Jerry Seinfeld a while a go at the market. It was fun a small market and I love going there.

I saw so many lilacs vendors over there. And when asked if those lilacs were edible they were like "huh eating lilacs?" They were confused by my question if the lilacs were organically grown and therefore edible. Well, after went in and out  5 vendors one guy told me that all of these lilacs were sprayed. So I bought a big bunch for myself anyway since they are so pretty.

Then the rain was suddenly  pouring in. I immediately went in to the subway station and headed home hand carried the lilacs in the rain. It was all worth it for these pretty lilacs.

I love the aroma that comes out from the flowers; soft pretty sweet lilacs! The next day was Mother's Day I took half of the bunch and put them in a vase and tied a big bow around the vase's neck to give to my mother- in-law. I also created a card for her like the one I posted a while a go. {here}

Since I can not cook with these lilacs; I created a theme of purple vignettes goes with it.

Thank you so much for looking!
