Lily of the Valley


She is a small flower,
about the size of my pinkie.
She seems delicate and fragile
upon first glance,
but she's much heartier than one might think.
She has a gentle presence,
with intricate scalloped edges
on her face turned to the ground.
Unassuming,
she has a strong, refreshing fragrance
that fills a room.

I believe I have found a new favorite flower.

I have always loved Lily of the Valley. So feminine and so fragrant. :)

She's also deadly poisonous.

(The only reason I know this is because Breaking Bad season 4 just ended and the Lily of the Valley served as a major plot point.)

Hi Tricia!
I like the way lily of the valley pops up on its own. My daughter reads your blog and is blessed by it. I see why.

I think you mean "hardier." Yes, I believe you are.
