Happy May Day! Many years ago this day would have been filled with celebrations, including the making of May baskets. The flower-filled baskets would have been secretly placed on friend's and neighbor's door handles as a spring surprise. This is definitely one tradition I'd love to see revived... since we don't actually have a handle on our front door, I made Isabelle a little salt-shaker "basket" out of the backyard posies. Had the squirrel not guillotined _all_ my tulips, we may have had a more robust display, but I think this little tussy-mussy of violas, bluebells and white violets is just darling.
