Lily of the Valley, A Poem and Happiness Calendar

May 1st is La Fete de Muguet in France when people give their loved ones little bunches of Muguet, Lily of the Valley. Our Dear Friend Kath, to whom I dedicate my blog and who died far too soon nearly eight years ago, loved France and we holidayed with her and Charlie in Meysaac a couple of times. Every May 1st she would give me a little bouquet of muguet when we were close enough or send a card if we weren’t. As soon as we moved here, I planted some Lily of the Valley in a shady spot and have picked a couple of flowers each year in Kath’s memory. This year there have been many blooms and I have brought them inside to share with you all in a spirit of love and friendship and in memory of my beautiful, much missed friend.

For Kath, Lily of the Valley and Rosemary

My poet friend, Kim Ridgeon wrote the perfect poem for today and with his permission, I share it with you here.

Here is this month’s Action for Happiness calendar, helping ¬†us all to manage ourselves in these very strange times. Stay safe everyone.
