Muguet or lilly of the valley in bloom just in time for the first of May. The tradition in France is to give a sprig of the pretty and fragrant plant to friends and family on the first day of May to bring good luck. For more photos and to read a little more about it, see May is Here and It's May!
This dramatic smartphone photo is of a stand growing in friend Sylvia's garden in the south of France. Merci!
