    I love your May Day Bento! The little radish flowers look so sweet. Did you ever leave a flower basket on a door knob then ring the bell and run away on May Day? we grew up doing that to our neighbors!

      We made May Day baskets in school when I was a kid. My neighbors now (young girls) have given me paper May Day baskets in the past. I have a plan for tomorrow but not sure if it will happen. Thanks for sharing your experience. It is a fun holiday that not everyone knows about.

  6. Beautiful bento. I love how you make everything in your bento! The basket is very clever. xx
