A bed of lily of the valley

This is the most common habitat for wild lily of the valley in Green Timbers Park in SurreyBC.The path is just off to the right.

Bed of wild lily of the valley

It’s been my spring project to follow this plant (along with others, of course) from the first signs in spring, through to flowering. I expect we’ll get another few days of these bright white flowers, and that will be it.

I’ll be interested to see what the berries look like.

It’s been fun, and for an added bonus, here’s another shot from today. I’ve cropped heavily to see the pollen, and a pollen drop on the flowers (right side). Seems a spider has also taken up residence there in the crevices. Neat.
