Ding Dong.... Ding Dong....


...

...

Yes, that was me.

Hanging these little flowers on your door for May Day!

Jumping over the porch railing to get away quickly!

Running around the corner, giggling!

...

...

Can you call the paramedics now please?

Thank you for the lovely flowers. While I have no May pole for celebration, all of my muguet (lily-of-the-valley) is blooming so I'll be gathering a bouquet in French tradition.

Lindsay said...

aww thanks love the flowers on my front door. Glad I know who put them there ;-)

Maggie B said...

Happy May Day.
Thank you Jenny for the lovely flowers, I'd send you some muguet but DH dropped the pot of Liy of the Valley whilst unloading groceries yesterday and they are looking a little worse for wear!

Theresa said...

Thank you for those flowers and sorry about the yuccas:) I am sure that hurt! Happy May day my friend!

Cheryl said...

Aw, gee, thanks Jenny. I love me some May Day flowers. That 5 foot drop from my deck must have hurt like hell. Help is on the way.

I remember so well doing this on May Day when I was a kid.

I was surprised a few years ago when I discovered that most of the teachers at my school had never participated in the May Day basket tradition, and didn't even know it existed! So - - - I quickly made some baskets and hung them on their room doors. It was fun. And the next year, one of them left a basket for me!

Kelly said...

It's officially my birthday month! Woohoo! Thanks for the flowers!

Justine :o )

Terry said...

ROFLMBO!! You're just too funny! :0)

Beth said...

You are so funny....and sweet! I hope you have a great day!

Jeanie said...

Oh, I loved doing that when I was a kid....making baskets out of construction paper, filling them with flowers and leaving them on peoples doors. I think I liked the ringing the doorbell and running away best. Thanks for your May Day gift today and I hope you heal fast.

Terra said...

Dare I say, I was laughing at the image of you of jumping over the porch railing. Fortunately I don't have a railing - I know you had a clean get away from mine - it must be another house the paramedics had to pull up to!

Julie Harward said...

Pondside said...

It's a cold and rainy May 1st here, so that cheery little cone was a sweet surprise! I love the tradition - I remember it from our years living in a German village.
Now go back into the house and have a cup of tea and calm down - that's enough excitement for one day!

I remember doing this as a kid! Why don't we do this anymore?

And thanks for the lovely bouquet!

Linda said...

Such a sweet thing to do. Are you OK now???

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

Brenda said...

Sweet! Thanks Jenny have a great day!

Wombat Central said...

We had our May Day activities planned for later this afternoon... I LOVE your door hanger flower holders! We were just going to do little vases, but we may have to copy your idea (is that okay?). :)

Jennifer said...

Pretty! :D

Ms. Anthropy said...

If you could only see the mental image I have of you jumping over the porch railing! *laugh

Tina said...

Oh Jenny, I needed a pick-me-up today! And I remember that tradition fondly from my youth in Sweden. Thanks for the bouquet, and for stirring my memories.

Carol said...

Happy May Day to you! I have sweet memories of hanging May Day baskets on neighbors' doors and running away after I rang the doorbell!

Smiles,
Carol

Sue said...

That's enough to make Oscar the Grouch smile!

=)

Chatty Crone said...

I love that arrangement - so bright and cheerful. sandie

VKT said...

That is adorable. Sorry if my dog nipped at your heel as you ran around the corner...lol

kim said...

Jenny, thank you so much for the flowers. Don't worry I couldn't catch you either without calling the paramedics.

Kayren, Pink Daisy Girl said...

Sprain your ankle jumping over or have a heart attack from running away?

Country Dreaming said...

Oh Jenny---you are waaaay too funny!
Thanks for the flowers and right back at YOU!

Thank you, Jenny. At least one person around here is sweet. When I described the May Day Tussie Mussie tradition to my brood, the all looked at me like I was crazy. I began to ask whether they'd been raised in a barn, but then I realize some of them were my own kids . . . oooops.

CherylK said...

That's so thoughtful...and that's a pretty, pretty may basket! Happy May Day to you, too, even if it's almost over.

Lisa said...

LOL!!!
Happy May Day!
Hugs,Lisa

Wow - you made it all the way to Washington too, my flowers are perfect. :)

Sandy said...

Jenny,
I just knew it had to be you! Thank you! :)

"Cottage By The Sea" said...

Loved the flowers, now, right back atcha!

Julie Schuler said...

I'm celebrating May Day the old fashioned way- railing against our capitalist overlords, rioting in the streets, lifting up my laboring brothers and sisters.....

or maybe just ordering a pizza.

Terri and Bob said...

NICE!

Thank you for the flowers. It was a bit of cheer today!

How did you ever manage to do it in Missouri? :-)

Lourie said...

Thank you they are beautiful. You stay off that ankle now. ;)

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I loved doing that as a child. Today's kids miss so much don't they?

Steph said...

They are lovely and you're very thoughtful and sweet. We never celebrated May Day, but it seems so old-fashioned and quaint. I love the way Anne of Green Gables fame is always receiving May flowers from one of her children.
