A May Day Posie

May day
We spent the entire day in the garden today (after I had a networky chitty chat two-hour breakfast at Gravy: so fun!) and I'm so tired I can barely move (from the gardening, not the two-hour breakfast). At one point we came home after a trip to the nursery and this was on our front door. Our lovely little girl neighbor blessed us with a May Day gift. Is that the sweetest thing ever? In exchange I showed her the baby birds in the birdhouse, from afar, of course.

I made May Day baskets when I was a little girl. Ribbon woven through green plastic strawberry baskets. I loved them. But today's May Day basket was special. :) Happy May Day peeps!

Oh so sweet.

I never did this "May Day" ritual, which is really surprising, me being a homosexual and all ;)

I don't think I've ever heard of May Day baskets before. It sounds sweet, though.

You know how I feel about Gravy!

Lucky you!

I made May Day baskets when I was a kid (Now that I'm casting my mind back I think I may have stolen flowers out of other people's gardens...hmmm? Am I a hypocrite or what?)

That was very sweet of her! I too made May Day baskets as a kid but only because we had to in school.

What kind of hatchlings do you have?
