La Fête du Muguet

 

La Fête du Muguet

In France La Fête du Muguet is celebrated on the first day in May.  What a lovely holiday…Lily of the Valley Day.  I love the romantic notion of giving loved ones small bouquets of lily of the valley.  Especially after the winter we have had the little sweet smelling bells are very much appreciated!  We have May Day…which is also about flowers and giving little posies.  Such a great idea.  Little floral gifts just when we need a boost.

Lily of the valley has always been one of my favorite flowers.  So fragrant with those adorable little bell tops.  They grew in abundance in my parent’s garden when I was growing up.  I made posy after posy of the tiny stems all the while imagining little fairies living among them.
