The 1st of May in France is a holiday to celebrate labour day, and it also carries an even older tradition. If someone offers you a sprig of lily of the valley, accept graciously, it brings good luck. Our dear friend Kath, for whom this blog is written, always gave us Lily of the Valley on this day. I grow them to honour my lovely friend, lost too soon. Mine are not ready to pick yet but I give you all this photo to bring you good luck in the French tradition.
