LA FÊTE DU MUGUET….
La Fête du Muguet….according to French tradition, on 1st May, give those you love a little bouquet of Lilly of the Valley (Muguet), to wish them happiness and good luck in celebration of the arrival of spring…..such a lovely tradition!
King Charles IX of France, who offered Lily of the Valley to all the ladies of his court on May 1st, 1561, decreed that on this day anyone in France can legally sell flowers without a license to sell, as long as they are a reasonable distance away from the nearest flower shop….another little fact for your day ahead!

So with this posy, picked fresh from the garden, I wish you all happiness and luck, and a
very happy day!
