muguet des bois

In Paris on May 1, you'll find bouquets
of lily of the valley for sale everywhere.
It's one day when anyone can harvest these
fragrant little flowers from their garden and
sell them on the street without a vendor's license.
(These were from my mom's garden, which was
hit hard by Hurricane Sandy.  I'm going
to miss these beautiful blooms!)

[To see more April flowers, visit Tina's Picstory.
