Friday Five: May Days


Here are five things I love about the month of May:

Celebrations: Son #2 and husband have birthdays, then comes Mother’s Day, and the month winds down (and summer kicks off) with Memorial Day.

Weather: The days warm up—sometimes too much; today is almost 90 degrees—but the nights are still cool and comfortable.

Blooming things: Iris, bleeding hearts, even dandelions…though I prefer not to have too many of the latter in my lawn.

Planting: I can get seeds in the ground and flowers in their pots, and it will be weeks before I have to battle garden pests and July heat.
















Baseball: The big leaguers are back at it, and so are my boys. Even though games four evenings a week mean our dinnertimes are crazy until late July, it’s still so much fun.

Have a great weekend!
