You all know the feeling that surfaces with seeing a perennial come back in Spring, especially if it is one that you favour or love the most. This year, to my surprise the Lily of the Valley showed its humble yet extravagantly beautiful and fragrant self. I am deeply appreciative that despite the grim circumstances around the world we can focus on the beauty of nature, even if for a short while. They are known to be aggressive spreaders and poisonous too, but they are certainly welcome in my garden.

Song of Solomon 2:1 - I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.
