where the writers are
Maytime at Blackberry Corner

We marked May Day with spring decorations--a pair of lavender pansy wreaths on the veranda, vases of pastel silk flowers throughout the house, and gardens of real flowers blooming outside during the month of May: lavender irises and ladybells; pink tulips, tiger lilies, and cherry blossoms; white roses and apple blossoms.

Throughout the month, we had a cluster of celebrations: my birthday, our boy's birthday, our niece's birthday, our boy's school trip, our boy's theater opening, our boy's musical concert, our twin nieces' musical concert and high school graduation, our twentieth wedding anniversary, and an extended family outing to celebrate everything all at once. 

These festive times leave joyful memories, but not much time to think or write!
