~Happy May Day and Simple & Sweet Fridays #113~

Happy May 1st Everyone!!
I decided to make a May Pole Layer Cake
to celebrate May Day.
I saw this idea on Pinterest for the cake and 
loved the whimsical look of it.
It was my first attempt on a 4 layer cake,
not too bad for my first.
I put some fresh flowers out on the door for May 1st.
So excited to share with you I ordered my
Purple Heirloom Artichokes at the nursery.
They just came in!
I can't wait to have fresh ones,
these were at the supermarket.
I saw this beautiful purple clematis at Trader Joe's.
I couldn't resist!
Wishing you all a wonderful 
~May Day Celebration~
 with lots of pretty flowers.
