May Day Poseys

May 1st is designated as "MAY Day".  Wikipedia says: "May Day is a public holiday usually celebrated on May 1st. It is an ancient  northern hemisphere spring festival       It is also a traditional spring holiday in many cultures. Dances, singing, and cake are usually part of the celebrations that the day includes... Fading in popularity since the late 20th century is the giving of "May baskets," small baskets of sweets or flowers, usually left anonymously on neighbor's  doorsteps."

 This bouquet made by my friend Sherri for her neighbor

I had heard of May pole dances but have never practiced nor was much aware of the giving of May baskets.  This past May 1st I met with my friends Sherri and Maria for breakfast.

 Mmmm Pancakes and more

  Afterwards Sherri needed to shop for flowers as she has the annual tradition of leaving baskets of flowers on her neighbor's door and also on her daughter's doorfront.  

We shopped for beautiful blooms at a favorite flower shop of Sherri's called Devyn's garden.*
