May Day (La Fête du Muguet, La Fête du Travail) in France is a public holiday to campaign for and celebrate workers rights. It is also an occasion to present lily-of-the-valley flowers to loved ones.
So... Today I sent many of my nearest and dearest an e-bouquet of one of my very favorite flowers. I have very fond memories of gathering many bouquets from my grandparents' garden. And, I'm additionally drawn to these flowers as I have a very sweet Lily granddaughter. Our oldest (9 years in a few days); the child who taught us (exuberantly) how to be grandparents.
