If you happen to be anywhere in France on May 1st, you'll no doubt spot little posies of lily of the valley everywhere you turn--the airport, the local bar, the markets, even the convenience store! They are one of my favorite flowers in the world so it was really fun for me to see them at every turn.
Our friends snapped a picture of my husband buying me a little bouquet from a street vendor at a market on Paris' Boulevard Raspail. What a sweet thing she was too--on her feet all day so late in her pregnancy and had nothing but a smile on her face when she saw that I was pregnant too. She told us her due date, what she was having, etc. all within a 2-minute exchange. Bless her.
