Happy May Day (turned Mothers Day) Gift!!

Happy May to all my Farmgirl Friends!

Do you remember the tradition of May Day?  Where on the first day of May you celebrate spring by secretly delivering a little basket of flowers to a friend; like literally knock on the door and then run?  Smile!!!  Do you keep up this sweet tradition?  Or are you like me and every year on May 2nd you remember that you were going to do that and forgot???  (I’m the worst for having great ideas AFTER the fact.).

    Hello Dori, Your May Day baskets are so sweet! Thank you for sharing your clever ideas.
    I remember a few May Days long, Long ago when I delivered surprises which we hung on the door handles of neighbors of my Grandma. She lived in a small Wisconsin town called Poy Sippi. I must have been only about 5 but; I remember feeling just wonderful doing that and I still do when I recollect ;). Blessings, Tammy

    Happy Mother’s Day Dori!
    What a wonderful idea for a “from the heart” gift. Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration- and including your granddaughter was a terrific way to start and pass on this tradition. Have a terrific Mother’s Day!

      Hi Donna,

      Thank you! And yes, including my little grand girl was honestly what made it so special! We are looking forward to next year.
