The 5th month of the year
is an outstanding one

According to the early Roman calendar, May was the third month. Later, the

ancient Romans used January as the first month and therefore, became the

 fifth month and it always had 31 days. May was first named for Maia, the

 Roman goddess of spring and growth. In the North Temperate Zone, may is

 one of the most beautiful months of the year. Usually, the snow and ice are

 gone by this time but the hot temperature hasn't arrived yet. In May, the first

 garden begins to sprout and the wild flowers start to bloom and the trees and

 grasses turn green. Wild flowers such as forsythia, dogwood, violets, and

 jack-in-the-box bloom and many birds build their nests to sit on the eggs

 that will soon hatch.

Love the fancy porch railing and the top of the

porch and the fancy there as well, and of course

the black kitty just fits. Perhaps he or she

seeks shelter in this old home left behind.

And give us this day our daily bread.

What a little cutie with gathered  goodies. Love her

little boots and cutie chubby arms and those curls.

Just simply a neat house with a picket fence.

I love wren houses. Such a little bird that

makes a lot of neat sounds.

A neat setting for sure.

Always a decorative setting with a bike is neat.
