Lily of the Valley- May Day in France

I wish I could say this was my photo - Found it on Pinterest and sadly no lily of the valleys to be found in NYC . It reminded me of la fete des muguets (Celebration of Lily of the Valley) in France that takes place on May 1 every year.  When I lived in Paris they seemed to pop out of nowhere-- suddenly It is said that this  for sale on one day only.  This little flower brings back happiness and it is a tradition to give a bunch of them to a loved one on the 1st of May in France.
