May Day

There was an interesting piece this past week in Mentalfloss on the traditions of May Day; if you like trivia, take a look.

In the meantime, Girl-child participated in the Heart of the Beast May Day Parade today. She made a root hat for the occasion:
It matched this float:
I planted some flowers and did various spring-like activities and my kitchen violet is in bloom again:
Happy May!
