cups of light

Cups of sunlight! Happy May Day!
Happy May! We are having the most glorious spring in memory. This year's weather has provided the perfect conditions for a spectacular showcase of blossoms... and each day is more stunning than the previous. What a contrast to last year's tragic ice storms, which impacted every shrub and tree. It's hard not to feel that the earth is singing with me as I emerge from the shadows of my darker days. As soon as I push "post", I plan on dancing out into the garden in my shorts and farm boots to clear more beds and just enjoy the beauty of this moment.

 Sure- there is the checkbook to balance, camp details to plan, e-mails to return, laundry to hang... but I will be doing it all OUTSIDE with a glass of ice tea...  and barefoot! Oh May, I have never been happier to see you! And I gathered this morning's sunlight in cups of tulips to send to all of you!

    I just came inside from gardening and playing to get my littlest to sleep but can't wait to get back out - we are enjoying jars of daffodils.

  4. Maya,

    I love your blog (both of them) for so many reasons. You inspire me every time I stop by. I love this photo! The sunlight pouring through the tulips warms my heart.I want to print this image and put it in a frame for those cloudy days when I want some sun and it is busy dancing on the other side of the clouds. Much love to you and your sweet family!
