Favorite Flowers at My Cottage


Forget-Me-Nots

Lace Cap Hydrangea

Lily of the Valley
I took these photos in the spring and can still smell the fragrance of the lily of the valley in my mind.

Oh my, I seriously thought you were going to say they were presently blooming. I was prepared to melt with envy. Bonnie

Two years ago I transplanted some Lilly of the Valley from my Uncle's home in WI to mine in IL. He had transplanted them from my Great Grandmother's home, son 20 years earlier. This year they came in, in full strength - starting to spread out and send a wonderful fragrance for a good 30 yard radius!

Blue flowers are Mother Nature's subtle way of showing off to horticulturists.

I wouldn't dare photograph my garden right now. It looks awful.

Ragdolldesigns,

How wonderful to have your Great Grandmother's Lily of the Valley transplants in your own garden. They 'took off' because they were home again.

I've never heard that about blue flowers. I like it!

I too love Forget-Me-Nots, Hydrangeas and Lily of the Valley. The only one of the three that I'm successful at growing though is the Hydrangeas.

QV----they are such delightful old-fashioned flowers.
