Bringing in the May

It's May!



My husband and I raised the May pole.
The wind will dance her ribbons.


I took my coffee to the front porch.

I did my meditation with the breeze and the ribbons.


Happy May Day!

Happy May Day to you too Sherry. The May Pole looks so cheerful. I am sure your neighbors enjoy seeing it.

We have an Baltimore Oriole singing in the back garden this a.m. I set out a dollop of grape jelly for it. I hope he finds it.

Dear Lisa,
Thank you! I think I have the only May pole on the block...maybe even in the city! I think it is very pretty. None of my neighbors have ever mentioned it. They do think I am different. LOL!
May baskets and May wine coming right up!
Oh, Lisa!! How exciting. The Baltimore Orioles are beautiful. I enjoy listening to the morning chorus and hearing their song.
I bet he will find your jelly and be very grateful! He will come back too and bring the family. They also love sliced oranges. I fix a nectar for them too. It is 1/3 cup sugar to 2 cups water. I bet you also will see an Orchard Oriole. They are so lovely....
Oh Lisa I am so happy for your gardens and you!
Happy May!
Sherry

Dear Chris,
I am watching the ribbons dance in the wind today. It is so very pretty.
I do May Day a wee bit different from the olde ways. I do keep the day and am so grateful I can start to sow seeds.
