The Merry Month of MAY

Maia was a Roman goddess in charge of the newly growing plants that appeared each year in the springtime. Today the month of May retains the name that still honors this Roman goddess and is beautifully represented by Lily-of-the-Valley.

When April steps aside for May, Like diamonds all the rain-drops glisten; Fresh violets open every day: To some new bird each hour we listen. – Lucy Larcom

 May is a time of renewal and growth and I find I make more resolutions in May than at the start of the year. I’ll let you know how the resolutions work out.  Enjoy the month Mother Nature has laid before us.

    What an inspiring post for a slow starting spring!! I always feel the same way about spring, it is rejuvenating and refreshing, and I find myself full of energy and enthusiasm!

  2. I love lilies of the valley and violets too! Both of them grow and flourish in our yard and they are some of my favorite things in spring!

    Wishing you a beautiful day!
