End of May

I am packing up the May decorations,

saying goodbye to the Maypole
and farewell to May's clouds.

There is cleaning to do.

The trees have finished blooming.

I am fixing the house for June.

Hi Sherry....Such a pretty post....I would love to be a fly on the wall and see your house change from month to month. You fascinate me, you really do.

Dear Cheryl,
It is fun!
I am right in the middle so things are a mess! I shpould have the house ready by bedtime.
My Grandmother's old magazines are so pretty. I have often thought I could do a post once a week showcasing different articles and ads.
Maybe next year I will do Magazine Fridays! LOL
Back to work.

Hi Sherry..
I love your old magazines on your blog.. Great shots of the Blue Jays one of favourite birds in our garden.
Why not a Magazine Fridays? Good idea..
Have a nice Sunday..

This May has been the best I remember. The temps have been cool and there was enough rain I dind't have to water much. Now we will be lurching into summer. temps and lots of watering no doubt. Love the old magazines.

I love the cover shots you've used. To me they are the epitome of spring. Thank you so much for brightening up my evening.

I agree with Cathy!(and Cheryl, and Guild-Rez, and Laurie: sorry Lisa, it's not that hot here!) Love, Vikki {:)

Dear Gisela,
I have a small collection of old magazines from my Grandmother. I do enjoy them.
Doing a magazine once a week could be very fun. I would love to share some of the articles and ads.
The Blue Jays are very handsome birds. They only come to the feeders for peanuts. If I put nuts out on the tray feeder the Jays do not come to the deck.
Sometimes I like to see them upclose.

Dear Cathy,
Zip-zap-zip...Summertime and the living is easy? At least it is humid living. I had to turn on the ac...I am grateful for it too.

Dear Lisa,
It has been a most perfect May here too. I love cool, wet springs!
Lots of weeding now to get to.
Let's just hope we have a nice wet summer too. I do not like to water!
The old magazines are fun.

Dear Laurie,
The old magazines are delightful.
The ads are fun too.
I bring out the next month and look through. Maybe once I get all caught up on Almanac I can figure out a way to share the magazines. They are too big for my scanner...
I will see if I can photograph some of the pages.
Maybe this winter...weeds are calling. Always projects to look forward to.

Dear Vikki,
LOL..Alaska does have summer right? Maybe for a week?
Life does speed up only so we can slow her down!
