When I was in the second grade my teacher taught us all how to weave a basket out of construction paper strips. She told us that it was a May Day basket and we were to fill it with flowers and leave it at a special person’s back door. I remember telling my Mother about it and she helped me come up with the flowers to fill it. I left it at a special person’s back door. I don’t paint many flowers.
