Maybe we only did this once - I'm not sure - but it felt like an annual tradition. May would come around and we'd be tired of the rain. We'd roll paper up into a cone shape and use it as a vase - ring people's door-bells and leave flowers on their door knob or front step. (Have you done this too?)
I loved doing this with my mom. Perhaps my other siblings were in school and it was just me and my mom - maybe the whole world was there with us - but I just remember being so excited to create this and leave little blooms of joy for our Tillicum neighbors.
I promise this: when I have children this will be an annual tradition. (now my #38 on my 50x50)
Happy May Day - May you have felt the joy of the sunshine on your face today!
