lily of the valley

Love-
Lily of the Valley. I'll never forget that my mom brought me a bunch when I got engaged. I would have carried a bouquet of them if they were in season. I pick them every time I visit my moms, and I hope the ones we transplanted last year to my house will pop up again. I also remember our ( me + my moms ) first attempt ( many years ago ) at a Martha Stewart craft-

The punch a hole in a tin can, thread wire, fill with flowers and hang charmingly on the door. You'll never guess what we filled them with-


I'd make them again in a second.

They are beautiful, and what a neat idea! It looks so charming, I think they would be especially sweet in an old farm house!
