Chasing Light ~ Telling Stories
Le Muguet, Lily of the Valley, is a May favorite in France. It’s the tradition to look for it on May 1st for good luck. I found it early here this year in the woods near my house in Minnesota.
Valerie. How delightful. I did just that this morning. I picked the tiny lilies along my garden walk and sang that ridiculous little song. I gathered a small bunch and tucked them in a vintage glass vase with a raised lily design and a lovely gold rim. I will attempt a photograph and will send some day. You will see why I am not a photographer by trade. It was fun to see your post.
I love it!
“and I’m an impulse shooter…” Valerie…it’s so refreshing to meet a pro photographer with whom I can share such an impatient trait 🙂 And your floral image is really nice… the lilys also are in full bloom here in the San Francisco Bay area. They’re a natural subject no matter where they may be found
Bientôt le 1er mai et les petits vendeurs des rues… Sous la pluie certainement!!
Un beau brin de muguet que celui-ci dans ton jardin…
I like this picture and I am curious why you chose it, rather than trying to show the the heart of the flowers.
Thank you Howard! Who can resist those tiny bell-shaped flowers? TThey are so fragile, trying to shoot the inside would require way too much time and care and I’m an impulse shooter 🙂
Gorgeous shot, Valérie! I love what that tradition, very sweet!
Nice work Valerie
Delicious! Love those little flowers!
