Back in the depression days our slogan was hooray hooray it's the first day of maay we take off our shoes and throw them away which a lot of kids did and they didn't put them back on until school started in the fall if they were lucky and their parents had enough money to buy them another pair of shoes

In the UK it's "Ne'er cast a clout (vest or undershirt) till May be out" meaning the may flowers or hawthorn. For the first time in a long while, the may was not out this weekend, but the rhododendrons were. I can't remember what that means weather-wise, but I'm keeping me big knickers to hand!

Flanders and Swann put it more succinctly... from the 'Song of the Weather' - "Farmers fear unkindly May, frost by night and hail by day!"

To the tune of 'Teddy bear's picnic'

If you go down to the woods today
you'd better go in diguise
If you go down to the woods today
you're in for a big surprise

The badgers and rabbits and squirrels all stare
At skyclad botties everywhere
Today's the day the pagans bonk for beltaine.....

Back to the paddling

TTFN Lady P.

I think the whole plant world knew it was May day.
The may started coming out round here (Old South Wales) on Thursday last week, and there was plenty about around Upton at the weekend.
The bluebells are early this year, had them in the garden for nearly 2 weeks.
It's a bumper year for dandelions.
The celandines were earlier than usual, but the violets are are only just showing their faces.
Oh and the red campion is out in force now.

Topsy turvey then!   There were violets out in Marlow in mid-March, along with the blackthorn and celandines, in my garden they appeared 2 weeks ago but the bluebells have only been out for a week. The lily of the valley has just burst into bells, the clematis and holly are in full flower but the pyrocantha, which this time last year was just opening, is still only putting out tightly closed buds.

The chestnut candles are probably out in Dorchester..... it's this time of year I miss it most.

The may blossom isnt out in my garden either, in Stoke. Odd, because everything else has been early this year; and certainly for the last couple of years I've seen blossom on May Day here.
