May Day

Today is May Day, Beltane in the Celtic calendar, the first day of summer on the calendar that places the longest day of the year at midsummer. When my girls were young they would get up early and make small bouquets of flowers and take them around to neighbors, hanging them on doorknobs. My granddaughters still do this.

The earliest apple trees are starting to bloom. I checked my photo log and the earliest apples were in full bloom on April 26 last year so we are several days later this year as it has been so cold.
