Unfortunately, here in the SF Bay Area we have had very little rain. I am concerned about my flowers and keeping my garden alive while conserving water this summer. Crossing my fingers we might still get a few weeks of late spring rain 🙂 If you have some special birthdays coming up this month think about giving a beautiful Lily of the Valley. I can’t think of a single person who does not appreciate their beauty and significance.
May’s flowers are the Lily of the Valley and the yellow or red Hawthorne
Lilies were so revered by the ancient Greeks that they believed they sprouted from the milk of Hera, the queen of the gods. Long tied to the Virgin Mary, the white Madonna lily represents virtue, while the lily of the valley conveys sweetness and humility. In the language of flowers, this May birth flower expresses purity of heart, majesty and honor.
