MAY HONORS MARY

May Honors Mary with Lilies of the Valley

A Christian legend proposes the lily bells to be “the frozen tears of the Virgin Mary”

In France, people give each other a bouquet of ‘muguet blanc’ as an offering for beneficence…like my grandmother used to give me…

The delicate bell blossoms are sweetly scented, their green stems denote something royal as if to say –  Springtime – Take the lead in nature’s rites amid verdant foliage

Time to open and spray me some of this elixir all around!
