Hello...... Last year we revived the tradition of May Day Baskets here at the Summerhouse, you can read all about it here the basic idea is that you leave baskets of flowers at friends and families doors on May Day.
So this morning I went out into the Summerhouse garden and clipped some flowers for my basket, too be honest a lot of the Spring flowers and bulbs are starting to go over but we have plenty of lovely bluebells and Forget me Nots
I don't know very much about the meaning of flowers so I thought I'd look them up
so this year we have
Bluebells for Humility
Forget me Nots to Remember
Violets for Faithfulness
White Roses for Purity
This little basket of Springtime is destined for my lovely Mum. although I did share photo's of the basket on friends Facebook walls today, a very modern twist on a old tradition.
Happy May Day everyone.
