Muguet du premier Mai


Le premier mai est aussi la fête du muguet en France et il est de tradition d'offrir un petit brin de muguet aux personnes que l'on aime. Le muguet est une fleur printanière par excellence car il fleurit au mois de mai. La tradition dit que le muguet porte bonheur, d'ailleurs d'après le langage des fleurs, muguet veut dite "retour du bonheur " On dit aussi que celui qui trouve un brin de muguet à 13 clochettes sera tout particulièrement favorisé par le destin.
May first is also the festival of the lily of the valley in France and it is the tradition to offer a small bit of lily of the valley to the people whom one loves. The lily of the valley is a spring flower because it flowers in May. The tradition says that the lily of the valley carries happiness, moreover according to the language of the flowers, lily of the valley wants known as "return of happiness" One also says that that which finds a bit of lily of the valley with 13 small bells will be particularly supported by the destiny.

I always thought "lily of the valley" referenced a lily in a valley. Now, I find it refers to a specific kind of flower. Thank you for that...

This is an exquisite photo - perfectly focused thus sharp, and beautifully soft where it needs to be.

Wonderful job, Arnaud! Let us hope the lily of the valley brings a "return of happiness" to the entire world!
