Saints Days

The florist's stall at the supermarket is always a mass of colour - occasionally verging on the garish.


Alongside the flowers is a little blackboard announcing the date and the name of the saint whose day it is, presumably so that the devout can honour the saint of their choosing.

As you may be able to see from the photo, yesterday was the turn of Sainte Marguerite.

A fitting religious custom or the ultimate marketing strategy I'm not sure, but I must admit that when I checked to see which saints day it was today, I felt mildly chuffed to see it is Sainte Elisabeth's day!

Hooray for florists! oh and Colin....... where's my flowers?!
