Have you ever hung a pocket of posies

          on the door of a friend or neighbor,

                     rung their door bell,

                                  and quickly ran? 

It was a wonderful May Day tradition I grew up enjoying.

Maybe it was because I loved flowers.

Apple blossoms.  Lilacs.  Dandelions.  In full bloom.

 Or maybe it was the chance to be sneaky and bless someone. 

I like to think that the recipient of my posy pocket felt blessed.


Years later living in my own home, a sweet young neighbor blessed me with a May Basket.

Recently on Facebook she related how fun it was to leave me the flowers and wondered if I had known it was from her.

I suspected.


What have you done lately, just for fun, to brighten the day of a friend, or stranger?


Happy May Day!
