Welcome May! Do you remember May baskets?
May Day, the first day of May, was celebrated by making up small baskets filled with flowers and then left at someone's door. Have you ever done that?
When I was young I took a piece of colored construction paper, made a cone, and filled it with flowers that I picked from my Mom's garden. I left it on the door knob of a neighbor lady named Mrs. Bankus. I knocked on her door and then ran home. I remember her as the lady with the beautiful flower garden and sometimes I would sneak in her back garden and smell the flowers.
We also celebrated May Day at school with a dance around the Maypole and crowning a May Queen from the May Court.

May is one of my favorite months, as it is the time when spring peaks and everywhere gardens are filled with color.
