Lily of the valley

  1. Is anyone else familiar with this?

    I don't think I ever saw this until today and I don't recall ever being aware of there being a nurse's emblem flower.

    Though I do love Lily of the Valleys.

    Lily of the valley is the birth flower for the month of May, which was Florence Nightengale's birthmonth.

    One of the most meaningful flower names along with Forget-me-nots and the Start of Bethlehem is Lilly of the Valley flower.
