Legend of the Lily of the Valley
Legend claims that as the Virgin Mary cried at the crucifixion of Jesus, her tears fell softly and turned into a beautiful flower, the lily of the valley. Even today many people call these delicate, bell-shaped flowers Mary's tears. Lily of the Valley is rich with the fragrance of springtime and new beginnings. These flowers also symbolize the sweetness, purity and rejuvenating qualities of Jesus Christ.
