Lily of the Valley

April showers bring May flowers,
goes the nursery rhyme.
Coming home from work today,
the fragrance was sublime.
Gotta fill a vase and enjoy,
missing out would be a crime.
I see some weeding in my future,
really must take the time:@)

Stop to smell the flowers and have a happy day!

  15. Loved the poem as much as the shot of the flowers. Actually, since it's still early here, I am a little groggy. I read "weeding in the future here" as "wedding in the future" at first. I thought you were giving an announcement.

    Ha!

  16. Gorgeous Lynn! I must plant some since it will grow in deep shade, I have a spot behind my potting shed that is ideal. Love your poetry :)

  19. Lynn, I read that too quickly, and I thought it said, "I see a wedding in my future." Well, it would be a beautiful bloom for a bridal bouquet. Thought you'd get a smile out of my pre-coffee brain at work. Have a great day!

  20. One of my favorite flowers and yet I never remember to plant any! They remind me of my childhood and little bouquets brought into the house for my mother!

  24. Beautiful! I've never planted these and I don't dare now with Bruce around.
    What a happy sight to greet you when you come home.

  25. Oh Lynn, I love your clever poem. :-D Your Lilies of the Valley are SO pretty -- definitely one of God's little miracles. They are one of the sweetest little flowers I know of, and that fragrance is just the best! I'm so glad you were greeted by these lovelies when you got home from work.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend, Lynn!

    Hugs,

  26. Lynn, you have these beauties in your yard??? Wow! They are truly lovely, and I love the way they smell. I have only seen them in bouquets from the florist (not sure if we can't grow them here or what), but I am in love. Such a lovely, lovely flower, and I can see why you would want a bouquet in your home.

    XO,

    Sheila
