and a happy May Day it was.
There was a quiet "knock knock knock" at the front door, or so I thought.
I went and looked...and didn't see anyone.
I went back to frying bacon, as we were having 'breakfast for supper' night and not only was I frying bacon, but trying a new recipe for stuffed french toast.
"knock knock knock" it went again. The dogs were friendly barking, and wagging.
Then I saw her....a tiny little granddaughter, hiding in the bushes and clutching bright posies.
So I played along....and even started "knock knock knocking" back.
then I slowly opened up the door, and tiny hands delicately pushed the bouquet in through the open door.
And then they ran ran ran....as fast as they could, giggling all the way.
Because THAT is what May Day is.
So...did you 'may day' anyone or did anyone get you?
Picked this up the other day:
Its put out by one of my favorite magazines, Coastal Living. I love some of the gorgeous pictures in it.
Scenes from our walk last night:
Now THOSE are some big and bright May Day baskets! I'll take two! LOL

The Confederate jasmine is in rampant bloom and the scent is intoxicating!
I know this picture is blurry, but I wanted to show y'all these bright and pretty flowers....and I LOVE these people's patterned sidewalk! I am still practicing and learning to use my new camera!
These people have such pretty flowers every year.
Do you see the lone plant that has sprung to life way up there by that window?
Enjoyed seeing this church.
Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. It was built in 1854.
It was burned down, then re-built. The workmanship is so amazing to me. I love the old tool chiseled brownstone. I got lucky with the lighting.
My closest view:
I love this sea mist green townhouse! Alot of the old homes on this street belonged to sea captains.
This is an elegant courtyard inside:
By the time the sun was setting, we were all getting tired and ready to head back to "the Front Porch"!
