A delicate and fragrant sign of spring, the Lily of the Valley has inspired a number of legends. One such Christian legend explains that the tears that Mary shed at the cross turned to Lilies of the Valley, prompting the flower to sometimes be referred to as Our Ladys Tears. Another legend tells of Lilies of the Valley springing from the blood of St. George during his battle with the dragon.
