Happy May Day!
May Day is traditionally a time to celebrate spring, and in many countries it’s observed as a holiday. Conventional activities include singing and dancing. In England this takes the form of dancing around the maypole or Morris dancing, a type of folk dancing which involves the striking of sticks and the pounding of clogs. In Britain spring has been underway for some time, with the earliest flowers peeking through in January (snowdrops) and February seeing much greenery and color appearing. In Chicago tiny shoots have only just begun to show and the first flowers are slowly arriving. So May Day truly does mark a milestone here in the Midwest.
In honor of this symbolic day I’ve pulled together some photos of flower arrangements I’ve received in the past. It seems appropriate to share some gift inspiration of a floral nature today. Enjoy!
