Saturday Snapshot: May 7

Saturday Snapshot is a meme hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books. All you have to do is "post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken and then leave a direct link to your post in the Mr. Linky on [her] blog. Photos can be old or new, and be of anything as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give is up to you." All she asks is that you don't just post random photos that you find online.



A sure sign of May. I love lilies of the valley. I had tried and tried to get them to grow at my house with little success. My mom bought me plants. They seemed to die. Last year my boss gave me some plants and when I went out to put them in the ground, I found that some of the earlier attempts had suddenly sprung up. I had my first blooms that year and managed some repeats this year. I'm hoping for a whole bed of them one of these days.

Beautiful :) We've got a few plants & flowers popping up now... and I thought our winter would have killed them all off.

Hi Bev,

I love lily-of-the-valley, I had them as part of my wedding bouquet and can always remember the lovely scent.

We have just come home from a short break in Wales, where we visited a lovely garden, that had a large flower bed, full of these lovely dainty flowers. The colour and scent were amazing.

They always remind me of something that should grow in dark damp forest havens. I love them!

Love those flowers too. You have inspired me to plant them thus year! I am so happy you have your first blooms this year.
Happy Mother's day to you!

Once those get established you will have them forever. And they smell nice too. Mine are just popping up this week.

Beautiful flowers, if I had a garden I'd definitely have some of those.
