Bright and sunny days replace the gloom,
open windows softly bring
fresh warm breezes to the room
angelic birds begin to sing,
buds of flowers now in bloom...



The cardinal is inviting me outdoors













To enjoy the beauty of God's creation


















The rain has stopped and the sun is shining…



So glad to open the windows,



Inviting the fresh spring breeze to enter…



Along with the fragrance of Lily Of The Valley…



They’ve arrived right on time…






For my favorite month…


May!





'Tis my faith that every flower


Enjoys the air it breathes!


~William Wordsworth

I've been sitting on the phone for what seems like all morning in my office, but your cardinal photo is luring me outside, isn't it?

So glad the rain has stopped for you. We've had mostly a nice Spring, but the rain is back today.

Do you think He is playing with us and keeping us on our toes?

Wishing you a wonderful week.

I'm so thrilled that the lily of the valley bloomed in time this year! I always used to give my mom a little bouquet on May Day (La Fête du Muguet) and so miss doing that. You've helped me celebrate spring all over again.

Your pictures are just beautiful...and May for us means close the windows, turn on the A/C, which I hate to do, and ...today is in the 90's. So only early morning allow adventures in nature...so enjoy!!!

Hi Lorraine-I love the month of May, as well...probably one of my favorite months of the year, along with December!
Your photos are lovely...love lilies of the valley, which I haven't seen since in years!
Take care, my dear friend!

I love May, too! How I wish I had some lily of the valley in my yard...I tried planting it but I think I needed to water it, too :) Hope you're having a spectacular week, my friend!!!
