Today is May Day, a traditional spring holiday in many countries. In the United States, years ago, we used to celebrate with May baskets of flowers hung on doors - but no more, apparently. I've never heard of the custom - have you?
Instead, I will celebrate with some photos taken in my yard over the last two days of April. Unlike Sunday's post, which featured flower photos taken in the Binghamton/Johnson City New York area, these are all from my yard.
Snow all through April. We even got snow flurries yesterday, but spring, finally, will not be denied.
May flowers for you.
Bloodroot has been blooming in my back yard for several days now. This is a short lived flower - but its early blooming habits make it so welcome.
Finally, a taste of flowers to come - white hyacinths.
Now, if only the trees would start to leaf out. With suddenly warm temperatures, I suspect that spring is going to be intense - and short. In fact, we have a possibility of severe weather on Thursday.
