Lily of the Valley
Go wandering in a shady woodland glen near Largo and you may come across a host of tiny bell-shaped flowers surrounded by emerald green leaves known as lily of the valley. Go browsing among vintage antique shops and you are likely to find many treasures adorned with sprigs of the same dainty flower. Lily of the valley harkens back to days of old when fairies graced the forest and prim decorative accents were in vogue.
In the language of flowers, lily of the valley signifies a return to happiness. A springtime flower, small stems contain multiple blossoms. There are tepals, not petals, that fuse at the base to form the bell shaped flower. The six ends curl up at the tip, adding a touch of whimsy to their appearance. They are a member of the asparagus family, but are not edible. They are also known as Mary’s tears, in honor of the mother of Christ.
These fragrant and dainty flowers add an ultra feminine flair to bridal bouquets. Catherine, the Duchess of York, chose to carry a bouquet of lily of the valley on her royal wedding day. You might choose to create a classic bouquet by circling a clutch of creamy white ranunculus with lily of the valley. Juxtapose demure lily of the valley next to sophisticated calla lilies for a unique effect. An opulent bouquet might pair them next to lush peonies, roses and greenery. The
pearl-like quality of the dangling bells makes for a dynamic presentation.
