37. I love liliesof the valley
They have got a great scent, haven't they? :)

The flowers in the picture are Leucojum, near as I can tell. Convallaria (lilies of the valley) have sort of broadish lanceolate leaves, unlike the narrow, strap-shaped ones in the picture. And you see those little green dots around the blossom rims? Those are distinctive of Leucojum, and lilies of the valley haven't got them.

I think snowdrops (Galanthus -- a Leucojum relative) also have white, nodding blossoms with green markings, but the flower shape is different.

They're all great plants, and well worth growing.
