5/365:2013 ATC lily of the valley
Lilys of the valley grows in forests and gardens. It has white flowers in one-sided clusters in May (June) and get red berries the after flowering.
The leaves and flowers, and berries contain substances that have been used as medicine for centuries, but which can be lethal, even in smaller doses for children and animals.
Lily of the valley's most often grows in sheltered forests, but is also observed up to 1200 meter above sea level, and in Norway as far north as Mo i Rana, my childhood town.
Medium used: watercolours and acrylic iridescent.
