Happy May Day! I remember every May Day bringing my elementary teachers a bouquet of fresh spring flowers from Mom’s garden…….Lily of the Valley, Tulips, daffodils, and hyacinth flowers. Mom would wrap the base of the flowers in a wet paper towel, then wrap that in Aluminum foil, and I would hold them on the bus all the way to school. My teachers would then have them on their desk all day, and I would sit there proud as a peacock.
Man……how times have changed. I would keel over from a heart attack if any of my 8th graders brought me flowers!
