On the first day of May we awoke to a bright blue sky. How very nice of the sun to greet us. Especially since within an hour it was snowy and grey...
And sometimes snowy and sunny, all at the same time, typical Colorado spring I suppose. The girls went out to pick dandelion bouquets, at that time the snowflakes falling very gently.
Honestly, they are not as solemn as they appear. It was a happy day. Just kind of quiet feeling.
This little May child of mine, it is her month, she has a birthday coming in just a few weeks.
(The girls are wearing the hooded cloaks that I made them many years ago, not so long and flowing anymore. And for once they are not wearing handmade dresses. Chloe is wearing a vintage Gunne Sax dress I got for her a few months ago, which I love for so many reasons, including the fact that my sister and I had ones that were very similar. Chessa's dress actually may have been handmade, it is vintage too, worn by another little girl so long ago...)
It snowed all night and we woke up to several inches of whiteness.
We hoped, and hoped and hoped, that this was the last snowfall of the season.
Once again the sky was sunny and we felt optimistic.
And then it snowed some more!!!
Surely though this was the end of it. (Please!) Beautiful May, we are so ready for you!!!
