Lily of the Valley
Granny sent me the neatest gift for Mother's Day....a lily of the valley plant! It was just a beautiful turquoise pot when I opened it, but with a little water and sunlight it quickly sprouted in to an amazing, sweet smelling, flowering plant!
I didn't remember until Mom reminded me, but my grandma Gwen used to grow these around the north side of her house. So, they have a very sentimental value.
I can definitely understand why my grandma chose to grow them. Not only are they super cute little bell looking flowers, but they smell amazing! Almost like a fine perfume. I have it sitting right in the center island in my kitchen and the whole area smells good!
