May Bells

There's a huge square of Lilies of the Valley underneath a tree in the Perennial Garden at the NYBG. Can't quite remember if they fill the entire square but I do recall that there's a slight slope both of which make notable design elements - the somewhat invasive lilies are reined in by the path around it and the slope gives an impression of a lot of them which makes them look that much more striking. I took quite few photos as I'm interested in doing a graphic print of these May Bells coincidentally also for a couple of design elements- I like how the flat planes of the leaves seem to almost criss cross which would really work graphically - like a basket weave almost and then those delicate bells on a vertical stalk in contrast.
