Do you celebrate May Day?
Well, you should. Among other things, it's a day to give and receive flowers.
Thanks to my Mom's persistent reminders, I finally received some May Day flowers this year from my husband. These English Daisies are perennial, so they'll bring a smile to my face year after year.
Have you received many flowers in your lifetime?
I have received a few, and they have all been pretty memorable.
One of the most memorable times that I received flowers was when I was an exchange student in Sheffield, England. I had an admirer--a boy who was much younger than me. One day he arrived at school with a bouquet of flowers for ME! How sweet! I noticed that some were real and some were plastic and most of them had dirt on them. Finally, one of his classmates spilled the beans that he had picked the flowers off of graves in the cemetery on the way to school! To spare him further teasing by his peers, I hugged my bouquet and raved about how beautiful they were. He looked proud and relieved! Now that is a bouquet I will never forget!
