Happy May Day!

On this ultimate day of April, the sun played light and shadow with our sweet redbud remnant... The tiny part of a once perfect tree... It blooms just as beautifully, and possibly with more artistic appeal in its broken state. I love the broken, the odd, the castoff... Especially I love it in direct juxtaposition with new or beautiful... Like this broiling blue cloudy sky. We had a little rain. We had a little sun. It was just one of those days that can't decide to be pretty or nasty.

 

I concur. It is difficult to determine whether I, myself, want to be pretty.... or nasty. But I suppose, for your sakes, I'll stick with pretty... Yeah, pretty it is! For today. But watch out .....Tomorrow!

Have a good May Day!
