The second day of May

Whenever I see buttercups I'm transported back to a time when I would string them together for necklaces, headbands and bracelets.


The first day of May was chilly and raining but the second day of May has made up for May Day.


Nice to have a beautiful weekend.


Last weekend was overcast and raining so this weekend is a treat.


It's amazing how fast my world turns green once the new growth starts.


The advantage to how wet it has been over the past six or seven years is how lush my world has been in spring and summer.


I still remember our last bad drought between 2007 and 2008.


I'll never take rain for granted again. That said, it has been wet for so many years now that I can enjoy sunny days like I didn't when we had a number of drought years.


There is something about the light this time of the year that I like in particular.


Today, May 2, is the only day I took any photographs all week.


I made up for it on my Saturday walk.


I took a ton of shots and since Sunday is supposed to be pretty, I'm sure I'll take a ton tomorrow.


There weren't many ducks or geese at the lake.


I notice in the spring that I hear them but don't see as many.


I know the herons stay near their young in protected nests and even geese and ducks stay in the more hidden places by the streams until the young start waddling out with them.


I hear them make a lot of racket but except for a few geeese, ducks and male mallards, I didn't see many water birds today.


Happy May!

It's a beautiful May where you are (here too but in an entirely different way of course). I have the very same thoughts when I see buttercups (or pictures of them, which is all I do see these days; thanks for the lovely memories).

wonderful places to just wander and also I like seeing the greens as they do remind me that summer's coming.

hope you have a lovely day.
