It's Positively May!

by Mauverneen



April showers bring May flowers. From the sight of the first crocus to the fragrant lilacs and lilies of the valley, we know spring is here! While I do love seeing all those colorful blossoms and catching whiffs of their wonderful fragrances, the birds are also harbingers of summer’s pending arrival.
