This one’s for Sue: Lily-of-the-Valley blooms

10 05 2011

When my friend Sue moved to Huntsville a few years ago, she divvied up her plants and gave this Lily-of-the-Valley (Convallaria majalis) to our friend Gina, who has nurtured it ever since. Gina wanted me to photograph it to show Sue that it went to a good home. It survives Northern Virginia winters admirably and blooms profusely in this little shabby chic watering can.

Blooming in my garden: Lily-of-the-Valley

Lily-of-the-Valley (Convallaria majalis), with extremely tiny unidentified insect (can you spot him?). I didn’t see it until I zoomed in on the image in Photoshop!

Lighter shade of pale

11 02 2009

Colors left to profile—red, green, and variegated (a fellow blogger’s suggestion)—I’ve covered orange, pink, blue, yellow and purple. Am I leaving something out?

I suppose since it’s still winter, I could cover brown, but that’s not too inspiring, is it? Might not be, but boy do I have lots of that color in the garden right now.

My friend Micheline and her husband downsized from a larger home to a condo a few years ago. My friend Gina introduced me to Micheline as she was preparing to move. The new homeowners were not gardeners and she wasn’t sure if the garden she had tended for so many years would prosper. She invited us over to take some plants for our gardens. She had a gorgeous bank of lemon drops and lily-of-the-valley plants and some from both areas have been thriving in my garden ever since. I photographed this lily-of-the-valley this afternoon.
