Pretend You Didn’t See Me

Happy May Day! I recall my mom telling us stories about May Day when she was growing up. Maypoles and ribbons…..hiding little woven baskets on doorsteps and hurrying away before you were caught. When our boys were young, they loved this “sneaky” little celebration. Ringing a doorbell….running….NOT getting in trouble for it?!?! πŸ˜‰ If you have children in your lives,Β teach this tradition. Maybe they will teach their children? Kindness is appreciated and so needed in this world. And not just on May Day. β™₯Β  Let’s spread the love ~

Got caught on this one!

  4. May Day is a very Northern hemisphere British / European tradition, celebrating the start of warmer weather and other things. In Australia, being a British colony, these traditions were still practiced when I was at school and we had maypole dancing etc on the first week day/ week of May. As a child I used to wonder what the significance of all the spring flowers were and the celebration of warm weather when we were approaching the colder days of winter. It took many many years for Australia to shake off traditions that did not really fit in with their seasons, and eventually create their own.

  5. Happy May Day, Paula!

  6. Until today, I never knew what May Day was all about. What a great idea. Canada was also a colony, I wonder why we didn’t do it here. Thanks for the flowers and Happy May Day whoever you are cause I didn’t see a thing… πŸ˜‰

  7. Something about flowers just automatically brings me happiness. Only the ones that grow, though. Not ones some florist chopped up & a man gave to his girlfriend as a peace offering after a huge argument. πŸ˜›

  8. We have May Day in England but I didn’t know about the baskets! That’s a lovely idea!

  9. Awe Paula, what a neat tradition! Thanks for the flowers and the surprise! πŸ™‚

    Beautiful iris and wonderful tradition. I’ve missed you–I admit that I haven’t been on line much for the past few weeks, but wordpress has been doing something with my follows. I have not been getting notifications from your blog. You are not on my list of blogs that I follow anymore. I have been looking through these and have found at least 5 other blogs that were taken off. What’s up with that? Anyway, I’m back and happy about it!!
