Happy May Day!
This day has been celebrated as many things over the centuries: the Festival of Flora in honor of the Roman goddess of flowers, Beltane the festival of fertility (now you know what dancing around the May pole signifies ;), and the German festival of Walpurgis Night (night of the witches' meeting). But far more recently it has been celebrated as the coming of spring and in many cultures flowers are left at the doorstep of women. So I offer to you these flowers, a photo I took while in Chelan Washington last year. Happy spring!
