A Beltane Bouquet…

Well perhaps it wasn’t the best of nights for jumping over fires or other more intimate May Day rituals – I lay in bed listening to the rain pouring down outside and thought that if anyone was out there celebrating the start of summer, I hoped they’d taken their best waterproofs with them…

My rather more sedate if still fairly soggy celebration, is a little virtual bouquet made up from the flowers I saw on the lane this morning.

Happy May Day 2014

Oh and just because it’s May Day, here’s my oak today.

  1. Beautiful! Over here, we are still waiting fro the leaves to appear on the trees – won’t have lilacs for atleast another two weeks. Thank you for the preview of what’s to come. Happy May!

    1. Hold on there, it will come eventually – I’m not sure if you’re the same, but things really came on quickly once April started, nothing gradual about it, just rapid rampant green growth – thinking of you!

  2. Tree is looking good……lovely lot of wild flowers, I love it when the hedgerows have some wild flowers, even if some are not all that wild, lovely May Day photos 🙂

    1. I really need someone who knows what everything is called to come out with me and teach me some of the names – I’ve got books, but it’s pretty daunting working out what’s what – I’d love to know what I’m looking at every day 🙂

  3. Lovely flowers to welcome the spring. I’m in Oslo and spent May Day visiting a couple of museums. Lovely sunny day, but very cold. Here’s to a warm and sunny summer.

    1. Oslo! How marvellous. I hope we’ll see pictures on your blog. My Other Half is a big Scandinavia fan, but since the children we’ve barely travelled – maybe once they fly the nest…

  4. Your lovely flower photos are so detailed and beautiful, with their raindrop coats! Is it just me, or is this year racing by?

It would be lovely to hear your thoughts...
