So Happy that it's May in Slate River, The Camellia.
So happy that it's May ! May is our favourite month!
Is it true? Is the Winter finally over? Last week there was a horrendous Ice/Snow storm which was very hard on the poor songbirds who had returned thinking it was Spring - especially the Robins. Three days of cold, and ice and snow cover....some of our Robins did not make it. Today it 's a beautiful partly cloudy day with some Rain, and here's what it looked like on this evening's walk. It feels like we are the only place that's not Green yet.
The Marsh marigolds are starting to leaf out, as are the fuzzy Willows, and the birch and poplars are laden with pollen. Buds are puffing out on our trees, and we start to hope, to imagine not wearing Winter boots, or coats or hats. What's the weather like where you are? Is it nice and warm yet? Sandal weather?
We have been busy making Willow Wreaths - these are a lot of work, you need to collect many branches to make just 1 wreath. A willow wreath makes a lovely #Mother's Day Gift.
Just arrived are these lovely Pillows I sleep with Dogs!.. How many of you sleep with your doggie (s) on the bed?
