Lily of the valley has been my favourite flower ever since I was a child. The reason for it may be the fact that it's blooming in Finland in the beginning of June - same time as I'm having my birthday. In Hungary teh blooming time for this flower is at least a month earlier and the season is very short.
Love the alluring scent of the lily of the valleys!
Lily of the valley is the national flower of Finland since 1967.
Lily of the valley was featured in the bridal bouquet at thewedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. Lily of the valley was also the flower chosen by Princess Grace Kelly to be featured in her bridal bouquet.
