First of May

Today is the day on which people offer each other little bunches of Lily-of-the-Valley in order to bring good luck. If you’ve ever been in France on the May 1st you may well have seen it being sold on the streets to passers by. I was offered my Lily-of-the-Valley by the lady who owns the bar restaurant in the village when we called in for a cup of coffee this morning.

Oh I love Lily of the Valley. I used to have a perfume from them too. I would love to look at the little bells and would wonder how did nature know to make them this way:)

A Lady's Life: They are pretty flowers. The ones I was given lasted for over a week. Nature is clever!
