Spring wouldn't be spring without lilacs. These beauties offer lush sprigs of sweetly scented blooms in shades of pink, purple, lavender, and white. Lilacs are great cut flowers, so enjoy the great fragrance indoors and out.
Outside the home, lush gardens flank the farmhouse porch. Gingerbread corbels, an arbor, and decorative touches such as the galvanized watering can hanging from a hook bring the vintage charm inside the home to the exterior.
At RMSer chefboston's home, the garden overflows with Shasta daisies, daylilies and other perennials. (Next slide: another view of the front yard) Notice how white of Shasta daisies give the eye a rest from the bright orange.
