April showers bring...

  flowers. 

 

When April steps aside for May,
Like diamonds all the rain-drops glisten;
Fresh violets open every day:
To some new bird each hour we listen."

-   Lucy Larcom

The month of May has been named for the Greek goddess Maia, who was identified with the Roman era goddess of fertility.

MAY is the fifth month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar and one of seven Gregorian months with the length of 31 days. It is also a month within the northern season of spring.

 

May Symbols

 

 Its birth flower is the Lily of the Valley.


May's birthstone is the emerald which means love or success.

 

 

                               

 

The month of May is the month of gardening, so get your trowel out and start digging.

The best way to garden is to put on a wide-brimmed straw hat
and some old clothes.  And with a hoe in one hand and a cold
drink in the other, tell somebody else where to dig.

-  Texas Bix Bender, Don't Throw in the Trowel

God made rainy days, so gardeners could get the housework done.

A man should never plant a garden larger
than his wife can take care of.  

-   T.H. Everett
