The Lone Lily of the Valley

lily of the valley

Last year, I unexpectedly discovered a lone lily of the valley growing in my yard. Years before, I had planted numerous bulbs, but none had ever bloomed.

I recently had a piece published on Mothers Always Write about the experience of discovering the bloom and the memories of my mother it unleashed. Click this link if you would like to read it: Forgotten Flowers.

Update: I found two more this spring!

Do certain flowers remind you of people you know or once knew?
