La Fete Du Muguet

A pinch and a punch for the first of the month…

In France we would not be ‘pinching’ and ‘punching’ today but wishing each other much happiness and presenting our friends and families with bouquets of lily of the valley…

A little Françoise Hardy to wish you all the happiest Fête du Muguet… xv

Bonjour ma belle,

Cette chanson me plaît bien. J’imagine d’être en France, PROVENCE surtout. Le printemps est arrivé et les fleurs sont les temoins de ce joli phenomene de la vie.

Grosses bises à tous! Anita

Married 60 years tomorrow (in Brooklyn, NY)- had a bunch of lily-of-the-valley for my bridal bouquet. How romantic!

I too have a bouquet of Lily of the Valley on my blog taken last year in Paris. Many happy returns to you and yours.

I’ve so enjoyed your moving quandary posts of late. Sending good thoughts!


I can’t wuite belive it is May already. I love the idea of exchanging a boquet of Lily of the Valley – there was none of that here in Melbourne on the 1st…just a few grumpy faces with a very miserable, rainy day!

whoops! ‘quite’ , ‘believe’ and ‘bouquet’… A lesson never to comment on blogs with a three year old child on your lap helping you type and madly pressing the mouse :)
