may day

A flower posy for my friend. A celebration of May Day and the promise of summer. I left it on her doorstep earlier today. 

The blooms were gathered from the garden and arranged into an old jam jar. Wild garlic, viburnum, pearlbush and cotoneaster make up the posy along with a purple flower, which I am unsure of. But I love its colour and shape. I added some gypsophilia. I couldn't resist it.

Joining Lou from littlegreenshed in reviving this lovely tradition and also remembering my childhood flower gathering in May. 

Joining in with #natureinthehome and #NITHMayDay. 


  1. What a gorgeous posy, your friend was no doubt thrilled, it's such a lovely tradition. CJ xx

  2. Dear Bee
    A very pretty posy indeed - what a lovely gift. I think the purple flower is a periwinkle.
    Best wishes

  3. A lovely gesture Bee - what a good friend! Jane x

  4. Beautiful! Seasonal flowers always look best in jam jars, don't they?
    Wishing you a wonderful May x

  5. I think the purple flower is periwinkle. I see it growing wild here a lot. Not this early in the year though. Lucky friend to get a surprise like that left on her doorstep.

  6. I would love to find this beautiful post in my doorstep, such a lovely idea x

  7. Beauty in its simplicity Bea!! Have a great start to what I think is one of the best months of the year!

    keep well

    Amanda :-)

  8. A gorgeous May bouquet - there's something about a jam jar posy isn't there? Hope you're having a super Bank Holiday! Katie x
