If we were still living in France, our house would be over-flowing with Lily of the Valley right now. It's been a tradition for centuries in France that on May 1st you give Lily of the Valley to your loved ones as a gesture of friendship and in celebration of spring. For the whole week running up to May Day it's everywhere. People even set up special stalls on the side of the road selling it so everyone can get their hands on it. I absolutely adore it and wish that it was easier - and cheaper - to get here.
Until I come up with a new English, May Day present, here is some virtual Muguet.
Happy May Day!
