Macro Flowers Saturday #10-Lily of the valley

Welcome to Macro Flowers Saturday!

Nice weekend to you all!

My contribution is the sweet scented Lily of the valley, another symbol of May.
The sight and fragrance of these small bell-shaped flowers have delighted poets and gardeners for centuries.
Many superstitions surround this ancient plant, one of which is that the nightingale is unable to sing until lilies bloom and fill the air with their lovely fragrance.

Although the delicate blossoms suggest purity, the berries and foliage, as well as the blossoms, are poisonous.

My first time to join this meme.

These are pretty, and they almost look like snow drops, but maybe I am wrong.

So glad I have found you again - I lost you for a couple of weeks. I am having the devil of a time getting the link to work, and no time to play with it. But I have you bookmarked now, so I can work on the link next week. Yes, I have followed the instructions, three times.
And I love you lily of the valley photos!!!
