‘Muguet Porte Bonheur!’ ‘Lilies of the Valley bring good luck!’ so shout the street sellers of this pretty scented flower. They are sold a little more quietly in the Carrefour but are no less lucky for that.
Flowers fit for a king
The celebration of spring around 1 May is as old
Entirely unplanned, we now have an annual tradition of bonkers French Easter cards. See the frankly feeble Easter card we posted in 2016 and the terrified flying baby of 2017. It's been tough choosing for 2018, but this year a simple effort from the chicks has won us over again.
The wedding couple on the right in our postcard today have found love. This is no marriage of convenience; our new husband shines with pride, his charming young wife is shyly happy.
We know from his fine moustache and her way with a floral shawl this stylish young couple are a match
Bonne année! We hope you have a great 2018!
Best wishes for a very Happy Christmas 2017
