      Thanks for featuring my Beltaine lens. I also like May because my youngest daughter was born in May. And the trees are finally getting green.

      In Canada, we celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday on the last Monday in May. In our area, we plant our annuals and put out our hanging baskets. Happy May!
