I came home, dropped my bags down and spent the next couple of hours working around the house. (Okay, this is an entirely different post in itself but I have been moving and re-moving the furniture around in my living room and cannot seem to get it right. I thought I had it to my satisfaction before I left for my trip but when I walked in the front door after being away (which is always my litmus test), it did not make me happy... so that is what I was fretting over at the moment). The day was overcast and about as un-springlike as you can get - down right gloomy actually. So after a little while I decided to run up to the store and pick up some pretty May Day flowers for myself. As I walked outside to get into my car, look what I found on my gate!
I cannot even tell you how excited I was! Aren't they gorgeous?
I was so very touched that someone (Ahhh such a dear friend to do this for me!) had left these for me!
It made me wish that I had done the same ... and it was at that moment that I knew that I had to make at least one little May Day bouquet of my own to pass along. The problem was that it was getting late and I did not have a lot of time. So I grabbed my scissors and went outside to my front yard ...
I turns out I had just enough to make a couple of little bouquets - and a few perfect David Austin roses even. I added some scrapbook paper, a glue stick, a hole punch and a little bit of ribbon ...
Delivering them was almost as fun as finding my own special bouquet. I have to remember this next year!
Your May Day treats are just beautiful! I made a few for my friends as well this year ~ so much fun knowing you brought a smile to a gloomy day!
So fun!!! and BEAUTIFUL!
Oh my gosh...this is so special... I will do this when I am back in Newport for my neighbors...lots of roses blooming now. You and your friend are so thoughtful.
That is SO lovely. Can you believe I've never heard of that? Next year that's a must for me to do. Thanks!
