In the Victorian era...
each flower carried an assigned meaning.
In the "language of flowers"
The Lily of the Valley signifies the return of happiness.
Legend tells of the affection of a lily of the valley
for a nighingale that did not come back to the woods
until the flower bloomed in May.

For Christmas a few years ago,
my Mom gave me this beautiful...
Fenton lily of the valley basket vase.
It's become my tradition that...
Every year when the lily of the valley bloom..
I fill my little Fenton basket.
Here is a close up of the dainty bells...
they smell as sweet as they look!
Today I am joining Cindy at My Romantic Home
for Show and Tell Friday.
Thanks for stopping by,
