April Showers Bring May Flowers

This is Lily of the Valley. It is my birth flower, symbolizing humility, chastity, and sweetness. My mom planted them in our garden, which is where this photo was taken.

The Lily of the Valley is a sweetly scented, but highly poisonous  flower. Other names include May lilyMay bellslily constancyladder-to-heavenmale lily, and muguet (French).

Below is a narcissus just outside the office I work at. Each flower has a central disc-shaped corona surrounded by a ring of six floral leaves called the perianth.

Below is a tulip of some sort (I think). It was in the part area right outside the office I work at. I really liked its yellow colour.
