Lily of the Valley

The flower of the month is Lily of the Valley.
The lily of the valley symbolizes the return of happiness:
"This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.." Psalms 118:
This verse from Psalms expresses each day's promise of a return of happiness and a reason to rejoice. Psalms are songs and are among the most poetic verses in the Bible.

The lily of the valley means return of happiness in the Victorian language of flowers. In North American and British flower of the month traditions, it is the flower of May and has been called May lily. Its botanical name is Convallaria majalis, from convallis, valley, and majalis, May. Native to Europe, Asia, and parts of North America, it is prized for its fragrance as well as its beauty.
