May Day

It was suppose to rain today. But phooey. As if we would let a few gray clouds get in the way of our flower hunting on this golden little day. I have celebrated May Day, almost religiously ever since I was a small girl. And today was no exception. The gathering, the anticipation, playing the part of the clever little fairy, secretly depositing our "pocket full of posies', onto the door-knobs of dear ones.



So this then dear friend, is for you:


Happy May Day!

A Basket of flowers from Daddy:

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS TRADITION, and oh do I hope to share it with my little girl next year.

Ironically... yes it was May Day and I left posies on my secret sisters doorstep (from church) as well.. with no clue as to that tradition... Ironic.

Makes me laugh!
and no Chelle.. no baby yet!

Hello Dear Chelle, I was browsing through your All things Domestic blog (which I love by the way) and somehow ended up here. What a cute lovely tradition, my mom and us girls use to the celebrate it when we were little, but have lost it through the years...
And Annabelle is so getting so big adn beautiful
many hugs and blessings

What sweet pictures of little Annabelle with daddy! And I love that traditon. It was never something I did growing up, but I may have to try it next year:)

How I miss the flowers on the doorstep from my little girl, now grown up with her own sweet little one! And so the tradition has passed on to another generation....
All My Love,
Mom

You two are adorable. I would have expected nothing less than my favorite Chelle and my favorite Annabelle to leave such precious, dainty things.

We used to do this when I was a little girl as well. Wonderful tradition! I loved seeing the pictures of your little cherub smelling the posies. What a great tradition to start with her!
