This is also the Daily Photo Bloggers's Monthly Theme Day. The Theme for the day is numbers. Since it's the 1st of May, Louis will cheat a bit and use the 1 for his theme...Most of the other Daily Photo Blogs in the right sidebar have (ahem) done the theme day correctly... (Editor to Louis: "Shame on you, Louis!")
Le Premier Mai is La Fête du Muguet in France. The tradition on this day is to give friends and loved ones a little bouquet of muguet, Lilly-of-the-Valley, for wishes of happiness and to celebrate the arrival of spring.
