muguet

i have been meaning to do that post on lilies of the valley since i found that one on the mfa's website. but then when i saw delphine's newest offering it was the extra push i needed. she also does ginkgo leaves, so somehow she seems on a similar wavelength to us, or at least to those who preceded her in france.

The lily of the valley was the first flower that I remember as a child. For some reason I had the notion that fairies lived in them and was forever trying to shake them out. The fragrance of the muguet de bois is unearthly.
