The first lily of the valley blooms have emerged in my garden, in the last days of March. I love lilies of the valley but they can be hard to grow here in Zone 7, so I’m delighted that these have decided to return. They emit one of my favorite fragrances, the inimitable “muguet“. Do you grow lilies of the valley? When do they emerge in your garden?
Just had to reblog this, not just because of the gorgeous photos but because of the phrase “all manner of early autumn herbaceous-ness”! Thank you Martin Ogden!
