Happy May Day

a virtual basket of posie for you...

May Day 
  by Sara Teasdale

A delicate fabric of bird song
Floats in the air,
The smell of wet wild earth
Is everywhere.
Red small leaves of the maple
Are clenched like a hand,
Like girls at their first communion
The pear trees stand.
Oh I must pass nothing by
Without loving it much,
The raindrop try with my lips,
The grass with my touch;
For how can I be sure
I shall see again
The world on the first of May
Shining after the rain?

the seasons first Lily of the Valley...
they smell amazing!

May Day Baskets
 I've shared in the past are...
Wishing you a sweet spring day...

Hi Bella,
What a cute title for this first day of May! Love the sweet little May Day basket. I'm off to look at your previous years basket right now. Have a great rest of your week!

So sweet, that May day basket. The posy looks so beautiful. And your Lily of the valley is already in bloom, I smell them, just when I see these pictures.

This is gorgeous Bella!!! I really love your baskets from the last four years. I remembered last years but had never seen 2010 or 2011, so that was such a treat for me. I love them all, but because this one has the beloved lily of the valley, it is my favorite :)
I am so excited about seeing your beautiful garden again this year. It is my favorite!!!
Thank you so much for your sweet message it made my day.
sending hugs...
