Happy May Day anyway.

May has always been a special month for us. We moved into this house 17 years ago today, came to Ireland 18 years ago on the 7th and got married 16 years ago on the 20th. There are also 4 family birthdays this month.

What is so sweet and dear,
As a prosperous morn in May,
The confident prime of the day,
And the dauntless youth of the year,
When nothing that asks for bliss,
Asking aright is denied,
And half the world a bridegroom is,
And half the world a bride?
by William Watson

And I have just noticed pink buds on the old apple trees. God, I love this month!

Sorry totally off topic. Embarassed

Funny how months bring memories. I lost my dear old Mum 1st May 46 years ago. She was an avid gardener and would get out there at all times. Weeding at dusk also killing the blooming slugs at night. She would have loved to have been with me this afternoon listening to the bees and watching the swallows, well she more than likely was love her.
