the month of May

Tradition back home: give muguets~lily of the valley~to anyone to bring them luck~I went into the garden , big foot and walker and managed to give myself some "bonne chance".
I imagined the street venders in Gent on every corner with baskets full of lily of the valley. I know every lapel has a sprig of it and the scent is heavenly.
My kitchen now smells of them and I should be in heaven.
Instead I am having big time blues for second day in a row.
What gives?
I do not know.
I could sit here and cry buckets if I would lt myself but I am a big girl now.
Yup, a big old girl.
Bonne chance to all my friends, it is the first of May.
