What do May Flowers Bring?

Even though the sun is shining today...there was frost in the grass this morning.  And as I type this, clouds have moved in's snowing! Thank goodness our tomatoes were cozy in their little "walls o' water!"  I know I am not the only one longing for Spring to stop and stay awhile.  Last weekend was so lovely, warm and filled with the scents of blossoming trees and new-mown lawns.  I saw my first butterfly...gracefully large and bravely yellow...gracing the branches of our new flowering chokecherry tree.  I have to say, it gave me hope.

An LDS blogger that I love has been posting about her daughter's baptism.  Writing to a non-LDS audience she likened baptism to it's a symbol of change...a rebirth.  Today's post was about the butterfly decorations she made for the family luncheon to celebrate the little girl's special day.  In the years to come, the daughter will cherish this memory of her mother's love.

Very pretty...the wreath is from brown-paper sacks.
White or natural coffee filters make lovely fluffy wreaths.

May Baskets!  Did you make them as a child?
I remember that baskets of flowers were hung on door knobs to celebrate the first of May!
We also learned to dance around the May Pole.
My friend Renee from My Vintage Mending pinned this picture of a folder of baskets from Hallmark that she found at an estate sale.  If you visit this link, she has pictures and instructions for saving the baskets to your computer to print on 8 x 11 inch cardstock.  Wouldn't your VT ladies love a sweet May basket?  It doesn't have to be today...May has 31 beautiful days. What a gracious and lovely custom to revive!
Have a lovely day!

Is there any day more beautiful that a day in May?
