Beltane/May Day 2017 (with May Flowers!)

Happy May Day, Joyous Beltane! Today we celebrate the start of the growing season, and also the time when young couples meet and start new lives together (that's what the Maypole is all about!). This year our April was full of showers and has produced a bumper crop of May flowers, and I found a bunch while walking along the Dykeman Walking Trail (or crawling, in some cases; these are all macro shots and I had to get flat on my belly to get some of them). So let's welcome May with a wildflower tribute.

Okay, so they're not flowers! But the April showers produced them, all the same.
