Flower Of The Month

Flower Of The Month

The Latin name for  the Lily Of The Valley is Convallaria Majalis. Which stems from Convallis meaning 'valley' and Majalis meaning 'of the month of May'. This beautiful flower springs up for the shortest season, just in early spring. You are most likely to smell these elegant flowers before you see them, as they are petit in size but wonderfully potent.

Within Greek mythology this beautiful flower is said to have been created as a carpet by Apollo for his nine ninths that walked Montparnasse, as he wanted a soft and scented ground for them to walk on.
