A long-standing practice that has fallen by the way side these days is the practice of giving flowers to friends and neighbors on the first of May.
Feel like being a bouquet bandit this year? Wrap small bunches of flowers (wild or hot-house, whatever floats your boat) in cones of colored paper, large doilies or even in small (or big, if you’re feeling generous) baskets. Prep them either the night before or the morning of May 1st and then head out to your lucky friends and leave the gifts on their front steps or hanging from their door knobs.
You can leave a note, of course, but you can also do it anonymously and keep your friends guessing who might have left them such a wonderful little gift!

That sounds like such a fun idea! Who doesn’t love flowers?
I really like that tradition. I wonder who I’ll surprise….
Hey Scraps. Thanks for stopping by my blog and hi from SITS. I wish I liked my neighbors enough to do this. Hmmm . . . maybe if I did, we could forage a friendly relationship. . . .
Finally got the frame done! I’ll send you a picture tonight!
I haven’t forgotten you, I swear….
What a wonderful tradition. I love to do fun and sweet things for my family and friends without them knowing.
