Lily Of The Valley (Convallaria majalis)

Lily Of The Valley
(Convallaria majalis)

I spied these gorgeous wee flowers growing in my mother-in-laws back garden when we visited her yesterday for Easter Dinner πŸ™‚ I had to lie down on the path to get this shot.. but it was well worth the effort πŸ˜‰

Lily of the valley has tiny white, fragrant bell-shaped flowers that grow on top of thin stems. The glossy green leaves that grow from the base of the plant are as tall as the flower stem, about 6 inches. The leaves will die back after the flowers bloom—and when the flowers are gone, they’ll be replaced by shiny red berries.
