scratch and sniff, ya'll


this is the lilac created in about 1895 by the gentleman who built my church home. lovely flowers and lovely scent. any lilac experts out there? the leaves are smaller and more delicate than what i consider typical lilac leaves, and they have a gorgeous purple blush. i've never seen this kind of lilac leaf before. anybody else? i've been told these are the only lilacs of this kind in existence, but that could have been wishful thinking. makes a good story anyway.

red door

red doors

a lot of churches have red doors. some say it's a sign of sanctuary, so I'm trying to decide if i should paint my door red. what do you think? any advice? *wink*
