May I?

May I? Catch up with May, that is. May really whizzed by and I should have had so much to share but life kept me away from blogging for a while.
Having been away for what seems like ages, I'm not sure where to start.
May was something of a mixed bag weather wise (you see, us Irish always like to talk  about the weather) with warm sunshine and heavy rain. The flowers really appreciated this and the garden
looked lovely with a profusion of apple blossoms on the old trees and heavenly scented lilacs.
May was the  month that Dundalk turned pink as the town welcomed the Giro D'Italia Big Start.
For weeks beforehand, shops, restaurants, and pubs turned pink in preparation for the famous race passing through town.
May was also the month that our son finished his art course and had his work included in the end of year exhibition - he's off to art college in September.


  1. It was a beautiful May here too and to be honest, I didn't mind the rain because it wasn't constant and it's made everything so lush this year, including weeds, Did you see much of the cycling? I think they went to the north Antrim Coast too but apparently it rained on them there. Was all over when we were there at the end of the month.

  2. May you? Yes, of course!
    We've had a similar may over here. The Tour de France is due to pass close to here so I hope we have some decent weather for that.

  3. I like May, it is a good month for the beauty of gardens to unfold. My husband would have loved to see the Giro! Me, I am not that bothered although I have been to a stage of the Tour de France twice and it was actually fun. Is that gorgeous ram sculpture your son's work? I hope June is a good month for you. x

  4. Looks like you have a lovely May, it getting cooler over here so nice to see all your photos.
