here come the May flowers

Do you celebrate May Day? I remember making cones and hanging them on my friends doors and of course running to avoid the kiss. I saw these quite some time ago and thought they would make the perfect May baskets.

For anyone out there who doesn't know what May Day is, it is celebrated on May 1st. There seems to be many different traditions and stories, but just about all of them use flowers. The popular tradition I know is to hang a cone or container of spring flowers on your friend's doorknob. However, you have to sneak away before they see you because if you get caught, you are supposed to get a kiss. With May Day only a couple of days away, I thought you might like to make these. You may even want to stick around and get that kiss...you would certainly be deserving.
