Let's Dance Around The Maypole
Good Morning and Happy May Day...Celebrate Spring with baskets and flowers and dancing around the Maypole. Many, many May Days ago, at the elementary school I attended, we did have a Maypole. We would make paper baskets and flowers to take home to our Mothers on May 1st. The first Saturday of May there was also a May Festival at the school with rides and plant stands, and cotton candy.
Today and tomorrow in downtown Baltimore, the Flowermart will be celebrating it's 92nd year.
Set up in Mount Vernon Square, there will be multitudes of flowers, dancing around the maypole, and of course lemons with peppermint sticks. Let's hope the sun does make an appearance.
