May Day

Spring has been a long time coming this year and the only flowers we have so far are a bunch of rather droopy daffodils. So, to find a May Day bouquet for today, I turned to my box of vintage handkerchiefs and found this lovely bunch of tiny blue violets.

But I must gather knots of flowers.
And buds and garlands gay,
For I'm to be Queen o' the May, mother,
I'm to be Queen o' the May."

—Alfred Lord Tennyson

Happy May Day everyone!
