Now Is The Month Of Maying* and I am celebrating this lovely May Day by having a sort out, taking stuff to the recycling centre, buying new bedlinen and taking lots of photos of my garden doing its spring thing.

  7. That garden is doing it's spring thing rather stunningly, if I might say so.

    And new bed linen eh, why is the purchase of new bed linen such a delight, or is that just me?

  10. Hardy folk I agree!

    Now is the month of maying,
    When merry lads are playing, fa la,
    Each with his bonny lass
    Upon the greeny grass

  11. Too busy helping a friend sort out her house to do my own (she is a major hoarder). Never knew that about the song. It would never have been written here in Canada. Brrrrr.
