Oh, how I love May Day! I don't remember how old I was when first I learned of this tradition. Do you know it?
Get up early while the world is still asleep but the sun is beginning to brighten the sky. Gather flowers and herbs and greenery from wherever you can. Bundle them into a little package of color and tie it to the doorknob of your friend, the porch of your neighbor - or your daughter's bedroom door.
Every year, I try to do something a little bit different. This year, it was a tiny tin pail tied with seam binding ribbon. Some years, it is a cone or a canning jar or a basket. I just wish some of my dear friends lived close enough for me to reach their doorways as well.
