Happy May Day

I need a break - I need sunshine - I need to be a flibber de gibbit for a while. (That was a phrase my grandmother used for times when someone was just being silly - and I need silly right now).
Sunshine through the trees over our shed . . .

Sunshine in my quilts . . .

Happy May Day to all - it is gloriously sunny here - and supposed to be 70 degrees this afternoon - now what could be better on a May Day? We will take our grandson to the park for a picnic and lots of climbing and running - well he will be climbing and running - I will be taking pictures.

The wonderful Dandelions are blooming all over the place . .

If you would like to read a fabulous blog about May Day - please visit Rowan she has done a great post. And turn on your speakers, her music just floats you away.

The fields are glorious with dandelions - and they are good for the livestock . . .

Yellow as far as the eye can see . . .

A sunny quilt - summer is coming for sure . . .

Violets are peeking out of the cracks in the big rock wall . . .

Sunshine at the beach . . . I need sunshine!!!

The little patch of Grape Hyacinth is blooming next to the front porch . . .

And here are some wishes - just for you my friend. May all your wishes come true!!!

Hi Joann, Happy May Day to you :o)
Wonderful photos, wonderful work, wonderful thoughts and sentiments. Welcome and thank you for visiting my blog... really mich to meet new people.
Let me know how your wish list goes. I also am a firm believer in Affirmations and need to blog about that soon to, it sort of fits with the Laws of Attraction etc. Anyway, enough rambling, just wanted to thank you for your comment and I'll be back to see your blog very soon.

Brightest Blessings,

Loved all your photos and that little quilt is SOOO cute!!! My hubby hates dandelions and is always battling to keep them from overtaking our little lawn here. With a very small yard, he tries to keep it perfectly groomed with good-quality turf and dandelions are an enemy of that!!!

Just dropping in to say hello ~ I found you through Uphilldowndale's blog. I'm not that far away ~ Vancouver Island, so we share many similar sights and sounds of the west coast!

The flowers are coming up a little here and there. I love your sunshine picture.

You know, if you look closely at dandelions, they actually are very pretty. Better than dead grass in the winter!
