These photos of lilies of the valley are from my garden, here in Salem's historic McIntire district. I took them when it was raining earlier this week. The lilies of the valley have virtually taken over the space under a huge tree in my yard, and I keep giving some away every year but they keep growing more. Obviously they love being thinned out.
The Clematis below is also in my yard. This plant has been growing there for about six years, and never really bloomed, but this year it finally came into its own and is spewing out lovely blossoms.
