Spring takes its time arriving to our part of Sweden. We still have wide swaths of lily of the valley in the forest near our home, which I love to stoop down to smell. I just learned that it’s highly poisonous (which I should have remembered from Breaking Bad!), so don’t let your little ones eat it. Its scientific name, Convallaria majalis or maialis, means “of or belonging to May.” Lucky for us in Sweden, we can continue enjoying it into June.
What’s your favorite spring flower?
