May Day!

Today is May Day!
May 1st has been celebrated for centuries.
And why not?
What could be a more gentle holiday
than one that invites you to leave a tiny bouquet of May flowers 
at someone's front door?
If you missed out today, here are a few ideas for next year:

I absolutely love this combination of yellow mums,
an orange rose, and a candy pink gerbera daisy:

This May basket from the Pies and Aprons blog
is loaded with old-fashioned charm. 
The lilacs and daffodils complement one another nicely,
and I bet they smell heavenly:

More gerbera daisies, these paired with white lilies.
They look wonderful against the blue door:

Happy May Day, everyone!
