May is Here!

Froggy went a courtin', uhummm.
There'll be crabapple jelly this fall!

The clematis is pretty now, will be gorgeous soon.

I'll leave you with this image from the front entry.
When I was a boy of seven or eight, we made May baskets to leave surreptitiously on the front porch of friendly neighbors. No one does that anymore. The world we live in today is not the world in which we grew up, for better and for worse. Do any of your grandchildren know any nursery rhymes?

I think I will step away from the blog for a bit, and step into the world which is Springtime in Indiana. It is one of my favorite times of the year. I am going to hang out in the yard for a while. There are flowers to enjoy, birds to hear and see, and garden to be planted.

I hope you will return when I do. I'll be back on May 15 for an update and at the least an occasional note.
[Happy Birthday tomorrow, Mike]

Will miss your regular posts my friend. When things dry a bit more, I'll be going out for the rest of the day.
There is an award for you on Secondary Roads.

Enjoying the blossoming spring through your pictures. Those images are not plentiful in our dry climate.

I remember the May baskets, and how the neighbors in Indiana thought Ilene was a little nuts when she delivered her baskets the first year we lived there.

...and if you are not blogging, how do I keep up with you, JoAnn, and Cookie? You had better email and call!
