Lily Of The Valley

He's the lily of the valley He's the bright and morning star
He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul

The old words to a song that means the world to my soul. I can recall singing it in those old country churches I would visit with my parents and grand-parents. But while that lily of the valley soothes my soul the plant lily of the valley is highly poisonous woodland flowering plant with sweetly scented, pendent, bell shaped white flowers that appear in the spring. 

The Lily of the Valley has been adored by many around the world. Perfumes featuring the scent have been created. One such was made by the French firm Dior in 1956. Christian Dior's favorite flower was the lily of the valley and Diorissimo was designed to celebrate this fact. 

The flower lily of the valley have been large parts of ceremonies including weddings. The bridal bouquet of Catherine Middleton the bride of Prince William featured the Lily of the valley. 

Many days including Labour day in France and Flora Day in the United Kingdom pay tribute to the flower as well. In the Yugoslavia and Finland the Lily of the valley was the national flower
