by Michelle Carr Crowe, San Jose Cupertino REALTORToday is May 1, also known as May Day. When I was a child, my mother taught us to make little baskets with bouquets of flowers from our yard and leave them anonymously on our neighbors' doorknobs. Does anyone else remember making May Day baskets?Sadly, I haven't seen this traditional type of May Day celebration since I was a young girl.Somehow daffodils always seem like smiles to me.I hope these virtual daffodil bouquets make it a Happy May Day for you.Images courtesy of www.pixabay.com. Thanks for reading "Happy May Day!
