Signs of springtime are abundant lately. It’s asparagus time. Also ramps, apple blossoms, dandelions, fiddleheads, tulips, nettles,… And lily of the valley unfurling dramatically. An entire army of terpsichorean twirlers synchronized, slowly unfurling, mesmerizing.
Lily of the valley (Convallaria majalis)… is a woodland flowering plant with sweetly scented, pendent, bell-shaped white flowers borne in sprays in spring. (Source: Wikipedia)
It’s still too early for the perfume that this ground cover will waft across the deck and into the screen porch, but anticipation smells almost as sweet! And the vibrant pageantry, Nature’s unsubtle choreography, is enchanting, even slightly hypnotic. Believe, these sylvan dervishes chant, believe and spring will swirl into summer once again.
