‘Tis May, the lovely month of May!

1 May 2010



Bee Flower Basket in shape of cornucopia‘Tis the merrie, merrie month of May! It’s spring, my favorite time of year, and I want to wish all David Archuleta fans, friends, and family a lovely day…a lovely month. To celebrate I’ve decorated DA Buzzing with flowers and will keep them until after Mother’s Day. Also, please let me say “thank you” to those who have made purchases on Zazzle. Your purchases are, of course, private, so I cannot thank you personally. Zazzle only lets me know that a certain item has sold. Thank you so very much! And now, on with May Day celebrations!

I give you this poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:

Hark! The sea-faring wild-fowl loud proclaim
My coming, and the swarming of the bees.
These are my heralds, and behold! my name
Is written in blossoms on the hawthorn-trees.
I tell the mariner when to sail the seas;
I waft o’er all the land from far away
The breath and bloom of the Hesperides,
My birthplace. I am Maia. I am May.

HW Longfellow (1807 – ’82); The Poet’s Calendar for May

Common Hawthorn Flowers are white The common hawthorn belongs to the rose family and produces its flowers in late spring in corymbs of 5-25 together. (A corymb is usually flat-topped flower cluster in which the individual flower stalks grow upward from various points of the main stem to approximately the same height.) The hawthorn’s fragrant blossom has five white petals and numerous red stamens. It is the official state flower of Missouri where more than 100 species grow.

Ever noticed how the maypole looks similar to DNA and with the alignment of the planets? Woooo! I get chills just thinkin’ about it!

    thanks, 3cota. I know it’s off-topic, but I had to celebrate! Spring has been so chilly and windy here, but finally we have some warmth and sunshine.

    I hope the flowers don’t add too much to the page load time. I plan to add a few more as time permits.

    hey WG, it would be great if we had “Smell-a-Blog,” but we’ll have to use our imaginations. Thanks for visiting today!

    Oh, I can’t take credit for the bee cone basket. Found it on a crafts site complete with instructions. Looks easy enough for me, but I don’t know where I’d find the googly eyes.
