Tuesday was May Day! A day when we used to put a May basket of flowers on a person’s doorstep, ring the bell, and run. Tim Kelling remembers me chasing him down when he was a kid of about nine years old, and I caught him! He said I was a fast runner! Those were the “Good Old Days.” Now, on May Day we enjoy the spring flowers and weather but no baskets that I am aware of.

Another week gone by, and it was really nice to have the rain. The blossoms around the Lyons area are really beautiful - trees, jonquils, tulips, crocus, violets, lilacs, spirea, etc. Those pink and yellow blossoms really add to the beauty. Of course, we know those red crabapple blossoms will bring loads of little apples falling everywhere. Everything has its drawbacks. But let’s enjoy the blossoms now.

Ah, some rain and snow this morning to cut down on the wildfire danger and make the flowers bloom and grass grow. It is hard to believe the weather can change so fast, but that is Colorado! And just in time for Easter! Yes, it usually is snowy during the Easter Egg Hunt, but maybe it will clear up before then. Happy Easter, to all!
