"Spring's Sweet Flowery Month Of May"

The first day of May has always felt a little exciting to me.   I think somehow May baskets and Spring combined into this anticipation I experience, a yearly rite of Spring passage.  Everything is so new and fresh, flowers are budding and blooming, green is spreading across the fields and yards. My favorite flowers bloom in Spring; the beauty...sweet, pure colors... the fragrances from deep and earthy, to musky and mild, to sweet and pure, to a scent so clean it's almost not there.
