The Legend of the Lily of the Valley

Supposedly, the flower was created by Eve’s tears, when she was expelled from the garden of Eden. In folklore, the lily of the valley formed ladders so the fairies could climb the reeds where their cradles lied. Another legend is the first lily of the valley loved a nightingale, but she was shy and hid in the long grass to listen to the bird’s song. The nightingale became lonely without the sight of the flower. He refused to sing any longer unless the lily of the valley bloomed every May for all to see.

Lily of the valley means return of happiness, purity, and humility.pexels-photo-236471.jpeg
