Okay, I admit it. I am crazy for May baskets. I think they are great. Oh how I wish I had time to make one this year but it is already April 30th, and I don’t think I’ll have the time to purchase what I need, to create a decent May basket. The cherry blossoms in my front yard are already fading and the azaleas have not yet burst into bloom. The irises in the back yard are all the same color, in other words they are boring. You need a colorful palette and the flowers I have access to don’t quite suit the task so I’ll just have to take a walk around the adjacent neighborhoods and feast my eyes on other people’s May baskets.
The fun begins tomorrow morning Friday May first and since the weather is cool, the lovely flower arrangements in their baskets should last several days. For more about May baskets, you can read last year’s May blog or go to
