Lilac in History

Redoute lilacLilacs are in full bloom these days. Ah, their colors, from snowy white to deep purple, their fragrance, their graceful shapes, from shrubs to full-grown trees…

All the more reason to recommend this post at Weave a Garland of My Vows (don’t you love that title?)

Lilacs were a favorite of Marie-Antoinette too, and she chose them as a motif for the silk hangings of her Bedchamber at Versailles, where you can still admire them.
