May Days

"It was the month of May, the month when the foliage of herbs and trees is most freshly green, when buds ripened and blossoms appear in their fragrance and loveliness.
And the month when lovers, subject to the same force which reawakens the plants, feel their hearts open again, recall past trysts and past vows, and moments of tenderness, and yearn for a renewal of the magical awareness which is love."

~ Sir Thomas Malory, La Morte d'Arthur

Beautiful! The perfect thing for me to look at whilst I enjoy a cup of tea and think about gardening (no actually gardening, just thinking about it!).

Terry said...

So beautiful! Our trees are just starting to show hints of leaves.

I am looking forward seeing some of these flowers in another month. I always like the music.

Oh flowers lovely flowers. That is how May should look. Not like here. 48 degrees and windy. Not even my daffs have popped yet. I see no point in even planting this year..........
