Lily of the valley ~ Convallaria majalis

Many of the flowers we have in the garden began in the gardens of friends and family. The lilies of the valley that a friend gave us 30 years ago has spread from a few plants to a large colony that has covered the flower bed on the north side of our home. The simple creamy white blossoms with the wonderful scent make a lovely floral carpet beneath the ferns and bleeding hearts each spring.

This botanical portrait was done in colored pencil on an 11" x 14" sheet of Fabriano Artistico hot pressed watercolor paper.
