A sweet bouquet

Yum

Bob and I love the smell of lilies of the valley. Each home we have lived in, we have done our best to plant some of these spring delights. Finally, after years of hoping and planting... we have a crop! This darling bouquet of lilies came from our own garden. I added a couple of hosta leaves to provide a background. This small bouquet fills our entire room with fragrance. Yummy!

The vase is a Turkish coffee glass given to us by my brother and sister in law when they went to Turkey a few years ago. Supposedly you pour the thick coffee into the glass, then pour it into the saucer to cool and drink. I thought it made a pretty vase!

  6. Ohhh....I adore lily-of-the-valley, and can't grow them out here. I look forward to growing then in the Ozarks soon! And your vase is grogeous!

  7. I have a rather large patch of lily of the valley that was here when we bought this house. I am wondering about moving some of them to another spot.
    Any helpful hints?

  8. It does make a lovely vase for such a sweet bouquet. My lilies of the valley are spreading all over the place this year. I can't wait until they bloom in a few more weeks.

  9. I have a small crop, as well! They're just adorable, aren't they? I don't have the heart to pick them though.
