May Flowers

Sweet April showers
Do spring May flowers.
– Thomas Tusser

Ground Ivy
Sweet May hath come to love us,
Flowers, trees, their blossoms don;
And through the blue heavens above us
The very clouds move on.
– Heinrich Heine

White Campion
Among the changing months, May stands confest
The sweetest, and in fairest colors dressed.
– James Thomson

Dame's Rocket
Hebe's here, May is here!
The air is fresh and sunny;
And the miser-bees are busy
Hoarding golden honey.
– Thomas Bailey

What potent blood hath modest May.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Swamp Buttercups
Never yet was a springtime, when the buds forgot to bloom.
– Margaret Elizabeth Sangster
