Only in May

I always look forward to gathering a bouquet of lily of the valley

and using my May china teacup and saucer

I love the fleeting beauty, sweet scent and delicate white bells of lily of the valley (Convallaria Majalis), a perennial groundcover that blooms only in May. Majalis means "that which belongs to May" and the flowers are said to bring luck and a return to happiness.
