May Day posie

I’m a teeny bit late but I love the May Day posie idea that I saw over on Little Green Shed blog so I’m taking part, even if it’s not technically May Day today! The Pagan tradition is to leave an anonymous posie of hand-picked flowers on someone’s front door to celebrate the beginning of May. Pop over to Lou’s blog to see so many lovely examples or search for the hastag #NITHmayday on Instagram (NITH = nature in the home).

So, this morning I got up extra early and picked some flowers and herbs from my balcony and roof terrace – Rosemary, Mint, Lavendar, Cornflowers, Forget-me-nots and Hydrangeas.

I wound twine around a Mason jar and wrote an anonymous note and left it on the office door of a special friend at work. I hope it makes her smile at what is a very difficult time.

I hope you enjoy the coming few weeks and all the colour, warmth and promise May brings.

    This is such a lovely idea, you’ve inspired me to make more floral arrangements! You’ve made a pretty posy, I really like it 🙂
