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.
What have you done lately, just for fun, to brighten the day of a friend, or stranger?
Happy May Day!
