Lilly of the Valley

Lilly of the Valley are one of my favorite flowers....the are the official flower of the month of May and are sometimes referred to as May bells. My birthday is in May, so it works out perfect :) Grace Kelly carried a beautiful bouquet of them when she married in Monaco years ago.
I have transplanted my plants from my mom's house up in Buffalo before she sold it and moved to her home in Florida full time. They spread quickly and every spring I'm always asking people if they'd like to stop by and take some.
They don't last long....just a week or so, but they're soooooooooo fragrant!
I snipped a bunch to take inside and put in a pretty little cut glass vase. They make my whole kitchen cheery. I hope you all have been having a lovely spring.

Whoa! I have never had enough for a bouquet--imagine!
I did, however, bring some over from a friend's garden and they're beginning to thrive.

I carried these in my wedding bouquet because they were my birth month flower!
