I like May Day. It should be a Holiday..it is USUALLY warmer May 1st..warmer than say Halloween or Valentines Day. May Day should be promoted by someone besides me. Perhaps you can mention it to a non May Day person..or better yet take them a May Basket..it is not too late..you have the rest of the day.
Lets look at May Day 1954..I was a very tall 2 years and 8 months old. My baby brother was just a little over a month old, way to little to be outside in the snow.
That is my dog in the background..My parents cannot remember his name..I think it was Frosty..because he was white. My maternal Grandparents always saw to it that I had a dog.
It snowed that May Day. It snowed last night.
The wind is blowing and the snow is stacking up on the ground..so far it is not melting. Winter has returned. I have had it with winter..I could take the rain..but the snow is fairly depressing.
I want spring..and I want it now! This is what spring should look like…
This is the picture tree that is in the old black and white photo. It is a Honeysuckle. Barb has Lupines and Iris planted nearby. After all these years the picture tree still retains its haphazard form.
The fragrance of the Honeysuckle blooms will attract every bee in the area..I will look up at the blooms again..just like when I was a little girl.
Happy May Day and Happy Birthday to Hunter who lives next door..he is thirty something now:)
