May...

"The world's favorite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May."

-  Edwin Way Teale



May... oh May, you are the most wonderful month.  The earth is smiling with flowers! The brightest, greenest, newest leaves hang limply from the horsechestnut, whilst tall flower spikes adorn it's branches. Cow parsley everywhere.  I saw my first Swallow the other day.. they are back for the summer, swooping and soaring over the grasslands.  

Oh the endless possibilities that May brings... picnics in the park after school, warmer evenings, holidays, bike rides in the woods.... I love you May...

Well yesterday was fun wasn't it?  I made 8 May Day posies, left them on door knobs and the doors steps of my friends and neighbours.  Such strong, wonderful women, each deserving a little May sunshine in their own right.  It was so much fun, sourcing the flowers, making them and delivering them.  

Thank you to those who joined me.  Have a look on the previous post to link through to the lovely blogs featuring their own unique way of celebrating May Day.  If you haven't made one yet and would like to, then please do!  This weekend!  Go, it will be a lovely surprise for someone.  Don't forget to take an image and either tweet or IG it using the hastag #NITHMayDay.

I feel we have started our own modern day tradition... I hope that next year it will be bigger with everyone receiving a jar of May flowers.. now wouldn't that be wonderful?

So here's to an abundant and glorious May...

happy birthday mum











Today was my mums birthday.
Lunch at Pizza Express then all manner of vehicles around Bristol Harbour.
First was a train ride on the harbour railway - the rain hammered down, luckily the driver gave us a towel to dry the seats.
Then a trip around the harbour on a narrow boat to see the boats and sights in more detail.
I love Bristol!
Mum had a great day despite the awful but predictable Bank Holiday weather.

corners of my home - may


It's nearly the end of May.  Where has it gone... flown by.
We have been doing some changes at home this month.
The internal door has been painted a bright welcoming blue.
{happy colour}
We are painting the hall white to make it brighter.
We have replaced our old dining table with this 1950's Formica one.  Such a happy blue colour.  It suits us and fits the space better.
The boys have been prolific in their art work.
Yes.. our home has become a tranquil sea of blue and green - not a conscious decision but somehow it's happened.
Have a happy weekend, my lovelies.
Hoping for sunny days and elderflower cordial making.

May!!!!!!!
I actually cannot believe it!
Really, is it really May?
We are hoping to see some May Day celebrations today... which will mean going to the villages for this as Bristol seems to have lost it's pagan roots!
Have a wonderful May... I am sooooo excited!
Yippie to Beltane, yay to cowparsley & whoop to longer and longer days!
