Lilac Pink and Cotton Candy Saturday

Alas, Random 5 Friday is on hiatus, so I'm going directly to Pink Saturday. I am going to do a post on my skincare and cosmetics shopping in Korea, but I'm going to save it for another day. Today I'm going to share one of my favorite photos from the trip, and almost pink, thanks to colorization via Google.

Although Blogger is playing difficult and not letting me enlarge this, it's one of the beautiful lilac bushes I found all over Seoul.  Lilacs are my favorite flower and one I didn't expect in Korea. But there were a number of times I was drawn to the lilacs via the aroma coming to me. There were some of the fullest and most beautiful lilacs I've ever seen.

One of my other discoveries in Korea is Milkcow, an organic Korean soft ice cream company. I had one of the best soft ice cream cones ever. There are many delightful varieties, but I went with Montblanc, which had a cotton candy garnish. There are branches in Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines, but since none of those countries are right around the corner, or a subway ride away, I'm hoping that Milkcow comes to New York. 

Soft ice cream, cotton candy and jelly beans -- fantasy come to life!

I'm still somewhere in another time zone, but I'm hoping I'm getting closer to New York City. In an effort to getting back to a more settled sleep schedule, I'm going to get ready for dreamland. I'm hoping my dreams will be all lilacs and cotton candy.

Sweet dreams and thanks, as ever, for stopping by.

You'll have to let us know when Milkcow arrives state-side! Sounds delish, Carol.

Speaking of delish, lilac bushes used to grow like mad in Los Alamos. We kids used to snitch our mothers' honey bottles, drizzle honey over the blooms and eat them. Weird, I know.

Hope your sleep schedule returns to normal real soon!


Lilacs are wonderfully fragrant. I love them too. That organic Korean soft ice cream sounds delish. Why does it sometimes seem the BEST things in life are far from home.

Hi Carol, I do hope you were able to rest soundly last night. Lilac is a favorite scent of mine too. We planted one last fall and it is just beginning to grow this spring. Your ice cream looks/sounds very interesting. I hope you have a lovely day.

Thx for the good wishes with my mri.

Lilacs are beautiful and smell wonderful, but unfortunately they don't grow in our area. It sounds like a wonderful trip.
