lily of the valley

I like to have fresh flowers in my living room, and this week I came across a delightful little pot of lily of the valley: Beautiful, isn't it? I am planning when it finishes flowering to plant it in my garden, hopefully to bloom again in next year. This will be a challenge, because the garden faces south, so does tend to be far too hot and dry for the kind of growing conditions lily of the valley prefer. In the meantime, it is so pretty, I will make some little sketches of it. 'Shame pencil and paint can't capture the delicious scent from the flowers ; )

Thanks, Penny : 0 ) The soft focus is purely down to the camera in my mobile phone ; )
