May Day 2009
The lilies of the valley are blooming, nestled in with columbine (aquilegia). We never know if they will be up for this date when it is traditional to gather bouquets of these lilies. There is a special dispensation whereby anyone can sell them on the road, sidewalks, etc. Why one should need that in order to sell a bouquet, well, the government wants to control everything, n’est-ce pas?
This is the French Labor Day. There will be parades and demonstrations organized by the unions (not out here where we live ).
I just like rejoicing in the beauty the Creator provides for us and participating in His Creation as I plant and weed my garden. So I wish you a happy May Day.
