May Day

To celebrate May Day somebody bought tulips and left one on each persons desk last Thursday.

According to the Wikipedia article, it would have been appropriate for Sean to chase down and kiss whoever left the flower there, but since it had been there for a while no kiss was exchanged.

It was a bit droopy, but Sean gave it to Louise who put it into water. That was just what it needed. It is almost a week later and it's still strong.

Ah, the connotations of May Day! The traditional call for help of ships or aircraft in distress! The big military parade in Red Square! The day after the Walpurgis Night celebrations of the witches!

One can almost picture some Heroes of the Soviet Union, a Wiccan coven, and a bunch of soggy pilots and sailors getting together and swapping tulips and kisses! ;D
