On top of Paris’s already incredible beauty, florists add their vibrant displays to catch the passing eye.  Who could resist.  On May 1, lilies of the valley appear everywhere, like pumpkins to our Halloween.  I find their tiny bell-shaped blossoms enchanting and will invariably indulge.  Once I pressed and dried a few sprigs in an attempt to preserve the magic but it turns out they are more alluring pre-pressed.
