The first of May is fast approaching and after what felt like a never-ending winter, it’s surely worthy of celebrating this year. Spring, and all the beauty, abundance and optimism it brings, is finally here; the great outdoors has sprung to life and everything feels greener and more colourful by the day. Yes, May might just be our favourite month of all which is why we’re all for marking the occasion.
May Day has been traditionally celebrated since Pagan times, with the crowning of a May Queen, decorating with flowers and dancing around a Maypole. But such celebrations are rare to see these days, which is why we’ve been heartened to read about the revival of another ancient May Day tradition; the anonymous gifting of a spring posy on a friend or neighbour’s doorstep, or hung from their door handle or knocker.
Such a lovely idea! So here's Esteban putting together a beautiful posy, and we’ve also put together a May Day posy Pinterest board for inspiration. We'll be selling posies in the shop, as well as our bottles and jars collections online to make May Day posy giving super easy.
Have a happy May Day all!
