I'm squeaking by with a post for Cathy's "In a Vase on Monday" meme at Rambling in the Garden. This vase with yellow tulips was created almost two weeks ago, but I never got my act together to post it.
Long story, but these two tulips were the only ones that bloomed this year--the rabbits ate the rest.
So ... fast forward two weeks, and the Lilies of the Valley (Convallaria majalis) are still blooming. Personally, I prefer them free of other flowers--in a simple vase surrounded by a few snippings of their own foliage.
This is what they look like on the shelf in the powder room where they "live."
The scent stirs memories of a very pure-scented perfume with a certain French name (roughly translates in English to lily of the valley of the woods) that was a favorite during my teenage years. It's like having perfume in a vase.
