It's May

Can you believe it? A third of the year has already gone by. I would swear I only noticed about half of it. Can't help it, though. May it is, so let's get ready for it.

This month's birthstone is the emerald. The original idea of birthstones is said to be an ancient one while the modern list was defined in 1912.
I wonder if May made them think spring green which then led to the emerald.
Oops, digressing. This post will not educate you about the emerald, we have our expert magpie for that.

What this post is supposed to do is paint a picture of May for you.
Imagine a lush spring meadow in green.

Now get off your computer and go out there instead before it suddenly isn't May anymore. Don't miss spring, it's one you'll never get back! :-)

Beautiful May selections. I can't believe May is already here, either.

Beautiful choices and perfect for Spring!

It finally warmed up here the last few days, but now the wind won't stop blowing which isn't helping anyone's allergies.
