Happy May Day!

Twenty three years ago a little red-headed boy rang the doorbell and hung a May Basket on the knob.

He had made the basket from a paper doily and attached a pipe-cleaner for the handle, he filled it with fistfuls of clover-- pulled up, with roots attached, from the yard.

Has there been any lovelier basket than this,
bestowed on the first day of May?

I don't think it's possible...

Life is Good!

I remember this sweet little red-headed boy! He grew up to be quite a nice young man. :-)

i bet your daughter put kylie up to this, cause we all know he wasn't sweet enough to do such a thing on his own being that he was such a mischievous prankster and all! :P

That is one adorable picture! Mayday doesn't seem to hold the same sweet pleasures today. I love your story about the little Lilies of the Valley also. Such an old fashioned little flower. Have a wonderful time on your retreat!
