Change Is Hard

Keeping spring

May is my favorite month.  Every year I wish May could be a little longer…like maybe 10 or 11 months long.

There is so much hope about May.  The garden isn’t planted yet, so nothing has failed to grow or produce crops.

I haven’t felt the unyielding pressure to weed every waking moment.  Though perhaps I should.

The sky seems bluer, the grass is green.  It’s not too hot and the mornings and evenings are pleasantly cool.

There is not snow.  Usually.

Apple blossoms snow flakes waiting to fall.

I wish I could keep May around forever.

But since I can’t, I’m going to enjoy the last few days of the month and wait patiently to see what June brings.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. I must plant some crab apple trees this year! I need them!

    Your yard is absolutely gorgeous, and I’m so jealous of your perfect, green grass. Makes me want to take off my shoes and run through it.
