As cool as the pale wet leaves
of lily-of-the-valley
She lay beside me in the dawn

I've always wanted to have Lily Of The Valley, but I've heard it's toxic to pets. And my silly dogs nibble everything!

Wonderful! I've always wanted to grow lily-of-the-valley. I finally bought some this year, they're such sweet flowers. I can't wait til they start to bloom!

This is such a lovely photo. Lily of the Valley is the first plant I have memories of from my childhood. Now I have to run out and see how close mine is to blooming.

Lily-of-the-valley is a favourite that reminds me of childhood, when the woods were crammed with them. Now I've got a handful in my garden and i cherish them very much. great shot and lovely poem!
