a darling little springtime gift
I know this beautiful Lily of the Valley won't last long. In fact, I'm surprised that it actually bloomed for me, since most plants refuse to grow flowers once I touch them with my grubby little grey thumbs.
The first individual blossom opened on Easter Sunday, but only one seemed very small, so I waited to photograph the stalks until more flowers had blossomed.
It seems like each day a few more individual flowers open up.
I just adore the petite look of the flowers.
Thank you Mother for such a sweet gift.
