These are thy wonders, Lord of Love,
Lily of the Valley, Convallaria majalis

To make us see
Columbine, Aquilegia
we are but flowers that glide:
Calla Lily Aethiopica

Which when we once can finde
Hydrangea Arborescens - Annabelle

and prove

Bishop's Weed Aegopodium

Thou hast a garden for us, where to bide.

Lily Lilium
from The Temple by George Herbert, 1838

Flowers, waiting in white


  1. These are all so beautiful! I especially love the Calla Lily with the red snaps!

    How long to the Lily of the Valley's bloom there?

    Love, Joan

  3. Joan, the lily of the valleys bloom in june, but the large green foliage stays throughout the summer. I have them at both gardens. These white flowers are from past years at Kepner.
