Happy May 1st! I’m celebrating with a May Day Basket, hanging on our dock post instead of a doorknob!
I’ve been Singing the Wildflower Blues this week, in praise of Bachelor Buttons, also know as Cornflowers, blooming in the field next to my Potting Shed.
Ox-eye daisy, a common roadside daisy, popped up this week to join the Bachelor Buttons, free for the picking.
Both are considered noxious weeds since they’re so invasive. . .
But ideal for a dockside May Day Basket with a nod to the charming and forgotten tradition of filling a basket with flowers to leave on your neighbor’s or friend’s door on the first day of May.
Happy first day of May~
May all your Weeds be Wildflowers!
