If it s was 1860 and someone gave you a bouquet of Lily of the Valley flowers, hold on to your socks! What he was really saying is "You made my life complete".
Many things in the Victorian era were more than what they seemed and flowers are no exception. There was a whole language of hidden meanings and messages embedded in the gifting and receiving of blossoms.
These fragrant bell shaped flowers signify sweetness and humility. As if we weren't already jealous of May with its Emerald birthstone, Lily of the Valley is May's birth flower!
