The Snowball bush is blooming. Again only a few flowers.
I am writing in the April journal; recapping the weather events and the birds and butterflies that came looking for food. Making notes for next year.
I am decorated for May. My new favorite month. The pinks of April are tucked away and the blues for May are out. Butterflies and Blue Birds are part of May's decor. The linens are ironed and the window fans are humming.
It is May Day Eve. Time for May Wine. Time for May Baskets.
Tonight, the crystal bowl goes outside, to collect May Day dew. We will raise the May Pole. We will bring in the May.
The Common Grackle is in the Icteridae Family, along with the Blackbirds and the Orioles. This Grackle is fanning his tail feathers and ruffling up his plumage while giving forth his "song" in hopes of attracting a mate.
