The Lily of the Valley is happiest luxuriating under the shade of a tree, a perfect pastime for a lazy day in May. 
Also known as Fairy Bells, May Lily and our Ladyís Tears, the mythical history of the Lily of the Valley sprang
 from blood shed in the struggle between St. Leonard and Malitia the dragon.

Fragrant and delicate in appearance, the Lily of the Valley is quite hardy and spreads freely where it is allowed.

It is a popular flower in Christian symbolism, representing purity, chastity, and innocence.
 Considered the special flower of The Virgin Mary, Christian folklore tells that the lily was yellow 
until Mary reached down to pick some of the bell shaped flowers, and then they turned white.

Completing the circle the origin of the month of may" is based on the
 The Greek goddess Maia was the virgin mother of Hermes.
