Spring rains bring flowers
Woven garlands and ribbons
Maypoles beckon

  8. My former husband was a Morris dancer here in the States, and we always used to Maypole on the first of May. This picture, its children, the quaintness of the image, along with your well-chosen words, paint a portrait in words and visuals that is indelible. Truly lovely, Becca!
    Your new friend, Amy
