Muguet de Bois

This past weekend spring and summer finally arrived all at once. And I am convinced that because of our unseasonably cold and rainy spring,  my garden is behind - I'm pretty sure that Lily of the Valley (aka Mugeut de Bois) is supposed to be one of the first spring flowers but mine didn't come out until June 1st.

They have such a pretty smell for such a tiny little flower, too bad they don't last very long.

I love them! They were in the Royal Wedding bouquet! I think your garden really is a month behind...we had the lily of the valley at the work garden (in the shade) about 2 weeks ago now. Does this mean you'll have pumpkins in November? :-)

Nope. No pumpkins in November. If I don't have good tomatoes or pumpkins by September they are mush!!!!
I am getting ripped off - I think it's time to buy some more stock in Miracle Grow!!!!
I didn't realize they were in the Royal Bouquet - how lovely!
