May 1st....

Happy May Day!


May 1st is May Day
and is a celebration of the arrival of spring.
It is believed that the holiday originated
 in Roman times as a festival of flowers.


One of the most popularly known May Day
traditions is to hang a basket full of
spring flowers and/or
other small gifts on a neighbor's doorknob.
The trick is you don't want the neighbor
to see you!
If you get caught, you are supposed
to get a kiss.
So DON'T get caught!

Being I don't have enough money
for gas to come to all of your houses
I made a May Day basket
and filled it with flowers just for you!

My May Day gift to all of my friends!

So if you have some friends
you would like to give a
May Day basket to --
today is the day to do it --
remember -- don't get caught
 -- or else you might get a kiss....

Later -- Remington --
Have a GREAT May Day!
-- out!

Thank you so much, Remington, for the pretty May Day flowers. It is such a dreary cold day here that they really helped to brighten our day. We did find a basket at our door when the Momster came back from church - some little bipeds must have been sneaking around:)

Hey Rem,
Happy May Day!

When our Mom was little she and Grandma use to weave baskets with forsythia branches. The yellow flowers made the baskets beautiful, and a true sign of Spring.

Have a wonderful day.
Love
Your BroLeo, Grady and Mom
