Happy May Day

I know, I said I'd be away~ but remembered...
It's May Day and my Grandma would want me to say it~

Happy May Day!



May is observed as Mary's month, and May Day
is usually
a celebration of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
In works of art, school skits, and so forth,

Mary's head will often be adorned with flowers.
The giving of "May baskets," small baskets of sweets and/or flowers,
are usually left anonymously on neighbors' doorsteps.
My Grandma used to do this and I'm so

thankful to have these memories in my head and heart~

Hope your day is lovely!

xoxo, Tracie

Happy May Day Tracie,
I will have the ice cream that you are having because I like crunchies in my ice cream. I'm off tomorrow if you want to stop by. We'll sit on my porch, eat ice cream and catch up. I'm so glad we're friends. You always make my day.

Hugs,
LeAnn :)

Dear Sweet Tracie, Happy May Day! I left a surprise by YOUR door, but you'll have to drop by my porch to get it. I hope your day is so wonderful. Your grandmother sounds like a delightful lady. I'm sure she's beautiful just like you!

I've spent my glorious day cutting tree limbs and having estimates in my ever-growing, water leaking house. Seems the bathtub has sprung a leak in the wall now. All those poor people in Africa who have to walk so far for a bucket of water and mine is coming up from the floors and seeping out of the walls!

Happy May Day sweet Tracie :)

I'm so sorry it took so long for me to get over here.

Thank you for the complement about Annie :)

I love that you celebrate May Day. I don't think most people know about it, but that's another reason why you are so endearing to me ;)

Love and hugs,
rue
