A celebration of May

During a walk today, we came across a May Day celebration in a park.

The scene could have been in Berkeley in the 1960s.
But then, so many things are retro now...

We watched as some adults led kids in a dance around the Maypole. It was a bit like herding cats, but they did manage to braid the pole without anyone becoming too entangled. And they had a lot of fun.

A little Madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King

The world's favorite season is the spring.
All things seem possible in May
