Growing up there has always been lilacs in the garden. You know spring has arrived when they are in full bloom. When wet, windy weather was approaching, often the flowers were picked and brought inside, perfuming the whole house; so they wouldn’t get destroyed by the storm.

The lilac flower pattern alternates around the leg, down the instep and ending just before the toe. There is an option to have a single lace lilac flower on the heel or just a plain stockinette heel.

With these socks you can have lilacs all year round.
