So many springtime flowers make a delightful appearance that lasts for only days, and then we must wait until again next year.
One of those flowers is Lily of the Valley. I have been watching for it since the end of March, even though I know it won't come until April. Those delicate white bells finally started unfurling earlier this week and they were a joy to see.
Lily of the Valley is a short stemmed flower that works well for petite designs, or it may be wired and added to larger bouquets. Another option is to provide a hidden water source
Then it can be worked into a larger design such as a centerpiece arrangement. Here it is featured with white anemones, pink, blush and white ranunculucs, hellebore, pieris and bleeding heart.
