May is here...so happy to turn my calendar over to MAY! Anyone else just as happy! It's been an amazing weekend so far. I loved watching the Royal Wedding on Friday and in honor of the Royal weekend we finally watched The King's Speech. Loved it and Colin Firth even more. I don't know about you but I have been thinking with a British accent since Friday and maybe dreaming in British too. I might have to watch an episode of Jersey Shore or Real House wives to get back to my American ways!
We had a gorgeous end of April here yesterday, Hubby and I spent the day out in the yard or as the British say Garden. Getting our hands dirty again was such a welcome treat after such a long cold winter and a wet Spring thus far. Having the sun beat down on us felt so good. We tore out bushes and bought Rhododendron bushes to replace. I loved them when we lived in Germany. Living in Utah before it's just to hot there for them to survive. So with any luck perhaps next May Day I will be enjoying a site like this outside my kitchen window.
These pictures are all from last May in Rhododendron Park in Bremen, Germany. It was an amazing sight to see such beautiful flowers of all kinds blooming in different stages and seasons. Other than Winter there was always color to be found.
Happy May Day and SUNDAY! Stop by Unknown Mami and travel the world with her this Sunday.
