"Have you seen but a White Lily grow?"
Not in Cornwall you haven't!
May celebrations are in a bit of turmoil as the ancient symbols used to signify the end of Winter and the dawning of Spring have yet to raise their sleepy heads!
Lilies of the Valley are used in the famous celebrations at the Helston Flora Day on Saturday 7th May 2016 as well as other traditional festivities. This year, however, it has been reported that, due to the cold evenings we have had recently, the lilies are only just starting to shoot, far too late for the Cornish festivals.
Watch out on our Blog over the next couple of weeks to see how these traditional festivities fare with or without the lilies...
