What size is the box? It looks a bit large on your coffee table. Otherwise, it is lovely.

@Lola-Poodle:  Oh no, I’m so sorry to hear about the lilacs! They are ephemeral though. Some people say that’s part of their charm, but I love them so much, I’d rather less of that particular charm! I’ve picked some and had them last 2 days and still look nice, but could never get more than that from them. Such a shame — your photo is gorgeous, and the smell……..  > dreamy sigh <

@Lola-Poodle:  The woody stems of lilacs do not take up water easily. To make them last, you need to cut the stem at a sharp angle and immediately place them in warm water with a floral preservative. You then need to use a sharp knife to split the stems upward for about an inch. Do not smash or hammer the stems or they will not be able to absorb water at all.
