Lily of the Valley

When Daniel and I bought our house, I had no idea of all the little garden surprises I'd meet as the year unfolded. Probably my favorite are the tiny little bell flowers called Lily of the Valley that grow along our fence. Each year--usually a little later, but this has been a weird year, as if Nature is about a month or so ahead of Herself--these delicate little white flowers start to hang their pretty shy heads. A few days ago, I got down on the driveway to capture some photos.

I wish there were a way to capture scent in photos because those tiny little blossoms, which I recently found out are also called muguet, give off the most delicious fragrance.

Summer is on the way...
