I planted some a couple of years ago. They did nothing. Maybe this year they will take off.

I wish I could plant this in my tropical country.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the comments. This flower is a garden classic. I have been trying to get a nice picture of this one for a long time.

Wonderful!! I have not managed to get a decent photo of mine, so I admire the skill of anyone who does manage it!
Thank you so much!

I was looking for a Lily of the Valley photo to take me back to my childhood in Minnesota when I discovered your beautiful rendition! Oh, it brings back memories....just wish I had that lovely smell. I have never visited your blog before and if you don't mind, I would like to use your photo in my blog which will be a proclamation of spring and my memories of certain flowers. I will certainly give you credit and promise not to use it anywhere else!
Thanks for bringing back fond memories of my childhood with this flower!
