11 May : Lily of the Valley

There is a house on the way to the station which has a front garden full of Lily of the Valley and nothing else. Every year I see the thin green shoots emerging through the stony soil and then for a short period the garden is a thing of extraordinary beauty. I really admire that gardener for waiting fifty weeks each year for an intense Lily of the Valley hit. I wish I was that patient.


  1. I was only coveting Lily of the Valley this week too, we need to think long term patience don't we.

  2. Don't want to make you jealous but my Lily of the Valley crept under the fence. I think itt decided that it was sunnier on my side. I'm not complaining.


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
