Sweet May

May is when the Lily of The Valley plant flowers here.  It carries such sweet memories for me.

May.  It was finally warming up.  Playing at my grandmother’s house when I was little.  My mom and her mom talking about what plants were flowering and planning what annuals to buy.  An entire flower bed next to Nana’s house filled with Lily of The Valley.  Their sweet, delicate scent filled the air!

Happy Love Thursday!

    Those are so delicate. I’m afraid that I am a black thumb of death to all plants. The one I still have alive is only that way because we ignore each other.

    Happy Love Thursday to you too!

    I love when photos evoke memories. Just the other day someone posted a photo of a tiny purple flower that reminded me of ones we had growing up. Love this post and photo!

    I too love Lily of the Valley: the little bell flowers, their intense and sweet fragrance, and the memories too. What a delightful post. Ours don’t come up until June.
