There is perhaps no spring flower that smells as sweet as Lily-of-the-Valley. Also called Mary’s Tears and Our Lady’s Tears — after the Virgin Mary, the little flower often makes moms nostalgic. They either had a patch in their childhood backyard, or wore the scent as a first perfume in high school. So stop in and buy your mom — or the mother to your children, or your sister, or your grandmother — a bunch for Mother’s Day. You can also buy Muguet-flavored Maison Bouche chocolate, or scoop up some of the other fragrant and delightful flowers that we have in the shop right now: heirloom daffodils, gigantic scilla in mauve and blue, bleeding heart, garden roses…. If your mother prefers to dig in the dirt, we have 9 varieties of tomato starts from Oxbow farmers Luke and Adam. Breathe it in.
