Convallaria majalis. Wikipedia tells me that it “is also known as Our Lady’s tears or Mary’s tears from Christian legends that it sprang from the weeping of the Virgin Mary during the crucifixion of Jesus.” I did not know that. I knew, of course, that our English translations of Song of Songs 2:1 (שׁוֹשַׁנַּת הָעֲמָקִים) seem to refer to this plant (although it is likely referring to another plant and this name of this one may derive from that verse) and that, to my mind at least, I often think of Luke 12:27 even though that isn’t strictly what it says. But mostly I just really liked this picture that I took in my backyard this afternoon.
