Since the 1800s, in America the tradition is to leave a paper basket or cone with spring flowers and sweets on each other’s doorsteps. This tradition is especially popular with children or sweethearts. The custom is to knock on the door, yell “May Basket!” and then run.
Who can you bless with a May Basket?
A very special gift is a bouquet of flowers from your own garden. For additional pretty basket ideas and other fun handmade gifts to share, check this out.
I invite you to gather a few flowers and sweets, and then place them in a paper basket or cone, or a woven basket, and share it with your neighbor.
What better way is there to show you care on this May Day!

Together, we can capture the beauty of YOUR LIFE, One Image at a Time!
Purple is half-blue, half-red, and our understanding of purple lies somewhere in between the serenity of blue and the passion of red. Purple both calms and stimulates our bodies, putting us in the right place for introspection and focused insight.
It fosters creativity by awakening our senses while promoting the quiet necessary to make intuitive, insightful observations. Purple creates a harmonious balance of awareness and peace.
How about that. Now ya know!
As we begin this new year, find some purple! Spend time in introspection. Be intentional to create an inward-outward balance. May you experience awareness and peace.
