Miss May Flowers looks like a folk dancer ready to do the May pole dance. When I was in elementary school we had a May day celebration. All the classes would learn different folk dances, dress in costumes and then perform their dances for the whole school on the playground. I can't remember if it was the third or fourth graders who got to do the May pole dance. I do remember doing the May pole dance. It was fun. What a great way to celebrate spring.
