Muguet porte-bonheur


En ce jour de premier mai, je vous offre le petit brin de muguet porte-bonheur !

Today is the first of May and  I am offering you a sprig of lily of the valley for good luck!


Il a été fraîchement cueilli ce matin dans les bois. Un autre petit bouquet avait poussé sur la toile hier soir…

It has been freshly picked up this morning in the woods. A few other sprigs had bloomed on the canvas yesterday evening…



Le délicat parfum du muguet est consensuel !

The delicate fragrance of lily of the valley is consensual!


Un joli bouquet va parfumer la maison pour quelques jours tandis que le petit hexagone rejoindra la collection.

A nice bouquet will fill the house with its sweet scent for a few days while the hexagon will join the collection.

    1. Thank you, Maristella! The bouquet was still sweet smelling today, I tried to keep it near me to enjoy it as much as possible and keep the memory of its fragrance until next year's May! Have a nice evening!

  4. Lily of the Valley is a plant much loved by all. It should be up in our garden any day now. I think we have bypassed spring this year and gone directly into summer. Today it is 28.5 degrees.

    1. The few days preceding May the first were rather cold in France and this year's lily of the valley was not as beautiful as it should have been. A lot of little bells were like rusted, and lilac has met the same fate. The beauties of spring are usually transient anyway and the camera is a good means to keep track of them and enjoy them much longer.I wish you a nice evening. Sandrine

    1. Thank you, Kim! Yes, the scent of this flower is wonderful and I try to appreciate it as much as possible because it is so ephemeral. Xx

    1. Thank you very much, Dimi! I completed the embroidery just in time for the post because the celebration of this little flower is on the first of May sharp in France. I wish you a happy evening!

  7. Oh, lily of the valley, what a delight! I love them! Both real and embroidered with a cross. A good addition to the collection of hexagons.
    Can you collect lilies of the valley in the forest? We can not, because they are on the brink of extinction. Therefore, I grow them in my garden :)) Soon they will blossom. In June :))) And today we have snow again ... How tired he is!
    Have a nice day!

    1. Thank you, Tatyana! Yes, we are allowed to pick up the flowers in the forest because lily of the valley is not an endangered species in France. However, we are not supposed to unroot the plants, just take the flowers. Lily of the valley is really the flower we can find at every street corner on that day : people are allowed to sell some small bouquets freely, with no special authorization, it is the only moment of the year we can do this and for this flower only. Otherwise, any time people want to sell something, they must declare it to the authorities (and pay taxes). I wish you a nice evening!

    1. Merci Karine! J'ai hésité pour la bordure de dentelle, de peur que ça ne fasse trop blanc et que ça cache le tour vert. Quels problèmes métaphysiques!

  13. Oh, they are so delicate and nice! We have many of them right now, blooming, and I always regret we cannot have lillies of the valley anytime we'd like to have them. Well, now you will: you have your special bunch of these flowers ready to be admired :)
    Have a nice end of the week,
    Szveta

    1. Thank you, Szvetlana! True, I can enjoy the the sight of lily of the valley with the embroidery, but I will unfortunately miss the fragrance! And lily of the valley scent is now rather rare in the perfume industry too, yet I love this fragrance for eau de toilette. Have a nice weekend! Sandrine
