Yesterday was May 1st..May Day! When I was a kid we made baskets and gave flowers to our Moms, or neighbors...usually old ladies.. I guess I fall into that category now! Addie spent the day with me while Amanda, Phil and Alexis went shopping. She found this dogwood blossom was the perfect May Day flower to pick.
Alexis spotted these fluffy flowers and thought they were so beautiful! I didn't want to ruin her impression of this weed so we put them in a pretty "vase" and set them on the outside deck table to enjoy. She did enjoy blowing the seeds off and I told her to make a wish when she did it. We haven't sprayed the lawn with any chemicals to get rid of dandelions because we need to find something that won't make the dog and cat sick. So she can pick as many as she wants!
You can see Alexis's beautiful bouquet on the table...I'm not sure what the guys are looking at but can you guess what Eddy is spying?
Mmmmm...Lex enjoys a YaYa cookie special after all that weed/flower picking!
