A sweet tradition...a sweet tiny flower! Happy May Day to you...come say hi :D said...

What a beautiful tradition. Americans are so less refined and cordial. We could learn a thing or two or a million from the Europeans.
Thanks for the follow.
I'm doing the same.
Happy weekend!

Happy May Day.
My DH bought me a pot of muguet yesterday as he does every year. When it has finished blooming I plant it in a flower bed by the front door ready for the following year.
Sadly he dropped the flower pot whilst unloading the groceries from the car and my muguet is looking very sorry for itself this morning.
Still, it's the thought that counts.

Oh cool! I looked it up and it is sort of like our Labor Day. Very neat. Happy "Labor Day" to you! I love Lilly of Valley. Such a beautiful flower.

What a beautiful tradition. I'd not heard of this one. I will remember this for next year so I can give some to my French friend who lives here in the states.
