Legend has it lily-of-the-valley protects gardens from evil spirits, and that it sprang from Eve's tears when she was forbidden in the Garden of Eden. It has an intoxicating scent that I believe could be labeled as a reputable Love Potion. It is unlike any other flower, in my opinion. And I am so excited to have my cooler stocked full of this exquisite bloom at the moment! This photo was taken earlier today and I love the stark contrast of the white bell-shaped blooms with the surrounding foliage.
It is the quintessential wedding flower and looks most beautiful when left to stand alone. The delicate racemes quake when you hold them and release a gorgeous scent, almost as beautiful as the Bride!
If you are fortunate enough to be getting married when these gems are in season, you are one lucky Bride. If you must absolutely have a bouquet in the off-season, you may be looking at some of the most expensive cut flowers on the market. Enjoy them while they last - because their remarkable charm comes but once a year, but they're well worth the wait!
