Lovely lily of the valley

Lily of the valley

Sometimes the simplest plants are the loveliest. I have a patch of lily of the valley under the camellia in the front garden and it never fails to delight. It is unassuming in the garden – quite a lot of leaf to a small flower. But pick a few of the strangely wiry stems and you’ve got one of the loveliest Spring posies possible.

The little white bells are so perfect…and the scent! I drove down to my parents this weekend and brought my mother a little bunch. The car was heady with their scent.
