Happy May Day!


In the 20th Century, May Day was often celebrated with baskets of flowers adorning your neighbor's front door. A sweet, anonymous surprise that has faded from our traditions.

In the words of Louisa May Alcott:
"...It was the custom of the children to hang them on the doors of their friends the night before May-day..."

Consider gathering some flowers, creating a simple and pretty paper cone and show your neighbor some bloomin' love.
