May Baskets honor the time-old tradition which the ancient Celts called “Beltane” — the day halfway between spring and summer that coincides with the return of fertility to the earth. In early times, small baskets of flowers and goodies were left on friends’ door knobs as a sign of kindness and friendship.
May Baskets adorned the homes of CVGC members in celebration of May Day. Sandy Robertson placed her basket on a hook in her front garden, as her front door isn't visible from the street. She added lilies of the valley from her yard and used the pink bow she made during the Bow Making Demonstration at our April meeting. Trish Demers thought someone in the club would be happy to know that their past ribbon efforts are still in use and it has held up in the strong winds. JoAnn Cook used flowers from her yard and her neighbor's.
Scroll over the photo and use the play button or arrow buttons located at the top of the picture to view all of the beautiful baskets.
Thank you to all members who participated!
