Le bouquet de Lili
As soon as you entered, to the right of the coat rack, a first bouquet of fresh flowers greeted us. Its delicate perfume, as in a breath, seemed to want to welcome us. According to the desires of our aunt Lili, little bells of lily of the valley rubbed against the delicate flowers of violets; the bewitching smell of jasmine mingled with that of the four o’clock flowers. A little later in the summer, the ephemeral flowers of a hibiscus came to liven up the table of the dining room.
