It’s May!

The relief is palpable.   For some reason this year it felt like Spring was forever just around the corner.   But now it’s May and we can all relax.   Temperatures are still cool at night but the sun is feeling warmer and the flowers are causing a riot of color all over the city.

Being the 1st of May it is May Day, and friends of ours have a standing tradition on this day of making bouquets of flowers and leaving them for their neighbors.  (Actually, Kristin said that in their neighborhood in Portland, OR everyone does it.  I’d never heard of it before, but it’s lovely and the kids always have fun.)

So in honor of warmer weather and the lovely month of May, I give you flowers in photo if not in reality.   Happy May Day!

About Amy

Amy Milstein was born and raised on a farm in Indiana, but after 20+ years considers herself a full-fledged New Yorker. She is married with two kids, who do not go to school but are instead life learners. This means they learn by living in the world (real life ) instead of hearing about it and simulating it in a classroom. With her family, Amy loves to travel, read, watch movies, write, sew, knit - the list is endless.
