May Basket Report

We delivered May Baskets to the Grands and three special little girls up North.

After we got back home and had a nap we delivered May Baskets in our neighborhood.

Most everyone was off doing nice spring evening activities so baskets were placed in plastic bags and hung out of the way of ferocious hungry dogs.

We found one smiling recipient!

Anna was home and promised to give her brother a basket!

We returned home and just as we were settling in for the evening Far Guy noticed some movement outside.  Someone was bringing us May Baskets!  He ran to the door and hollered “I am going to kiss you!”  Giggling Girls ran away squealing!  I got to the window in time to see them disappearing down the driveway.

Someday one of those four little girls will remember what fun it was to deliver May Baskets and keep the tradition alive!IMG_3887

  1. That is such a lovely tradition. Our local school kids do that. Since May 1st was a Sunday do you think we'll get a basket today instead?

  2. I read about it in the news yesterday, and some people were really glad that commercialism hasn't discovered the May basket. :-)

  3. I told my mom, who has mild dementia, about your May baskets and she was so happy that someone still does that! And then there were the May poles. We never did that but have seen them. Beautiful sunny day here, but frosty outside. Quite a struggle winter and spring are having. My money is on the spring!

  11. That is so sweet! I remember doing the May pole once in grammar school with the ribbons and weaving in and out...at least I think that was how it was done. I remember thinking it was pretty anyhow.

  19. What fun that you had your May Day kindness come back to you. I had saved the big origami sunflower I made last year and filled it with candy adaing for work. I took it in on Friday and filled it with more candy today. No school on Sunday, so before and after had to do.
