I read a little about this pretty, fragrant flower and there is a lot of Christian legend associated with it:
The lily of the valley flower is thought to have come from the weeping of Mary during the crucifixion of Jesus. Other etiologies have it coming from Eve's tears after she was driven with Adam from the Garden of Eden. Lily of the valley is also considered the sign of Christ's second coming. The power of men to envision a better world was also attributed to the lily of the valley. It was also interesting to read that all parts of the plant are highly poisonous.
