Five Likes Tuesday: May Morning

Wow, it's May already? Boy, time seems to be flying by. The month of May brings feelings of sweet anticipation for summer, longer sunshine-y days and warmer nights. I can't believe that summer is almost around the corner. In the meantime I am literally overwhelmed by all those beautiful blooming flowers and the beauty all around me. Nature inspires me in so many ways; I'm grateful for the lovely blossoms Mother Nature so graciously gave us!

The warm sun rays played on my eye lids and woke me up to a glorious, bright day.
I am at peace...xx

I am not sure what is the name of this flower, but I really like it!

My nieces used to go to a little school in northern Florida that celebrated May Day every year by winding ribbons around May poles. It was delightful and I always think of that. :)

Thanks for the flowers!

Happy May Day to you Betty! Thanks for sharing the beautiful berries and flowers. I especially love the delicate orangy color of the last one.

Ooh, so many bright colors! I do not have as much blossoming in my own yard yet. I have one friend who grows lots of flowers, but I haven't had the time to drive up there. Maybe I should make a phone call soon. Blessings to you, Betty.

We're already in May! The month that I like.
The days are larger, the heat is easier to carry and if you go on vacation hotels are cheaper and less queues to see interesting sites.
The flowers are full of beauty and exuberance.
Wonderful entry, Betty.
A hug.

Journaling Woman said...

Betty, I think because we had a mild winter here in MO, mother nature is going wild. Everything is growing fast and big.

One of my peonies' blooms is bigger than my face--so huge and fragrant.

Thanks so much for all your wonderful and kind encouragement!!

Teresa

Liz said...
