Lily of the val­ley

The Simple Things - - NEST -

With del­i­cate, nod­ding blooms, lily of the val­ley is a pop­u­lar choice for brides. Which doesn’t mean the rest of us shouldn’t en­joy them in the house. Their ephemeral na­ture means they won’t last long as cut flow­ers, how­ever. “Keep them out of sun­light in a minia­ture mixed posy or as a sin­gle bloom in a vo­tive holder,” says Ellie Mar­low, florist at Catkin & Pussy-wil­low. “Or dig up and dis­play with roots in­tact in a slim, glass, bud vase.”
