I'm so happy that May has arrived. I'm as happy as these little critters dancing around the Maypole!
In early April I had sent out a tweet pic (of snow and sleet) with the message that 'April was the cruelest month.' It turned out to be a crueler month than I could have imagined. We had been teased by the warmer temperatures in March and then April arrived, pelted us with sleet and hail and then rained purple tears all over us. I'm glad April is behind us.
Welcome May! Sun-kissed and sweet, May is the true beginning of spring up north. The flowers start to bloom in earnest and the green things leap out of the ground!
What a pity flowers can utter no sound!
A singing rose, a whispering violet, a murmuring honeysuckle,
Oh, what a rare and exquisite miracle would these be!

After raining on us for nearly a week the sun finally came out.
