Tomorrow is May Day! Here in France, we celebrate by exchanging sprigs of muguet (lily-of- the-valley) Charles IX started the tradition in 1561. He received a bonny little bouquet himself as a symbol of luck and Springtime. He liked it so much that he gave every lady in court this lovely bell shaped blossom!
