hello may....

it's official...you are now my favorite month....



your warm nights and sunny days have the flowers bursting...


the rose buds swelling...




and the vinca peering at the sun...

carefree leg-stretching bikerides are happening daily for me....





and little broken robins' eggs are showing up all over the lawn...
I simply can not think of a more beautiful month...can you?

I love your new header! Yes, May is a lovely month isn't it? It's the month I met my husband 3 years ago:)

I've really been wanting a bike lately, one with a basket on the handlebars!

Me too! I love May. There are so many pretty flowers blooming and the weather is still cool and not icky hot. Your header is so pretty and refreshing..I think I need to spend some time and redo a few things on my blog. After the move I'll have some time to work on things.
Have a great day and big hugs for you,
Elizabeth

Your new header is DELISH! I love the soft, yummy colors.

Robin egg shells in the grass? Whew, that just does not happen here. I so wish it did. My bestest friend gave me one from her nest and I was crazy about it... and then.......that adorable, precious and dear grandson of mine gave it a good pinch. History.

Thanks for coming...and yes, he's sooo much happier. I'm so thrilled for him. It's what he needed. I can't believe how uncaring his former school was.

Huggies!

Hi Paula,
May is my favorite month too. That is, until July, then July becomes my fave month, but only until October...

Have the most wonderful Mother's Day!
