May Moments


May was the month we started spending more time outside. Weekends were spent cleaning up the flower beds, bringing out the patio furniture and gardening....lots of gardening.

Our supper clubs continued...but since the weather was warmer we were able to barbecue

We went strawberry picking with the two youngest grandchildren, I tried freezing them this year, hoping to use them for smoothies and cooking this summer.

We started picking up our weekly produce baskets this month from the CSA that we are part of

Flowers are blooming everywhere, we went to the Garden's this month to see the Rose Garden, one of my favorite times to visit...honestly there isn't a time I don't like to visit.

We had our annual church picnic...everyone packs enough to share...all are welcome to attend

Lastly, a dear friend unexpectedly passed away this month, reminding us once again to live each of our days as if it were our last. Make the most of each opportunity...and take nothing for granted.

Beautiful photos, Maryann, and the church picnic sounds like lots of fun :)

Thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers! Hugs

Everything looks so beautiful in your corner. I have not yet planted nor have I hauled out the deck furniture...quite chilly yet in my corner. Isn't it odd all that goes on in a month that might otherwise be overlooked?

So many pretty things (and people!) at your place! I love this look back at the blessings of your month.

I have been wondering about your friend. I am sorry for his family and friends to hear that he passed, but happy to know that he is with the Lord. You're right...we never know what a month will bring. It's a good reminder to make the days count.

Thanks for "gathering" with me again this month.

Dear Maryann, your photos are really looking great! I have been working with my new camera and getting the brightness is so hard. We had a lovely picnic in the mountains today. I really enjoyed your new header on your blog! It feels so good to just be able to comment and not have to worry about doing a Link Party anymore. I miss visiting my friends!
Blessings, Miss Roxy

What a bounty you've had in May! I really enjoyed seeing your pictures, especially the smiling faces of your family. Have a great June!

It is such fun to relive these monthly moments. What a thrill to be able to enjoy these beautiful spring days.
Strawberry season was late this year, but I am also enjoying putting some by in the freezer for this winter.
