School break: Who are we kidding, we haven't even attempted anything "sit-down schoolish" since the beginning of April. Although I have to say my son has elevated pond study to scientific discipline in and of itself. I love not having to deal with the year end run-around that school families deal with this month.
Green!: The first month of real green, the invigorating (almost) fluorescent, new green that gives way to a color soothing, deep and full.
Lilacs: Lilacs are a blossom but they deserve their own recognition as my favorite spring flower. The sweet and spicy scent from my backyard lilac sitting pretty on my dining room table makes me smile and breathe deeply all day.
Celebrating & Remembering: A party to celebrate the birth & life of my oldest child and Mother's Day; a perfect day just.for.me.
Hiking & Camping: The planning and packing to share nature discoveries, physical exertion, and beautiful views; enjoying days outdoors with my family and the blackflies.
Gardening: Trips to garden centers, feeling the dirt in our toes. Planting, weeding, digging; sharing my love for all things green, growing and blossoming with my kiddos. And harvesting! Our first meal of spring greens from our garden served on this, the last day of May.
Happy: Especially this year, May is my happy month. When things dreamed, hoped and planned for begin.
