Lilies of the Valley
Every time I see my Lilies of the Valley I am reminded when a friend and her adult daughter, who grew up and lives in Germany, visited while they were in bloom some years back. In German, they are called "Maiblumen," or May blooms. I love that, I love their perfectly smooth seamless blossoms nodding gently in the breeze, I love how the leaves curl and wrap themselves around the blooms. I love how in autumn the blooms become crimson and orange little fruits, a late season surprise.
