Hawthorn is also known as May because its blossoms signal the start of this merry month and the tree has its own importance on this day of the year in traditions, celebrations and rituals.

  1. Hey there, inel. It’s been a while. I’ve been terribly busy lately. Sorry I haven’t stopped by too often. The skeptics on my blog have kept my hands full. 😛

    Very interesting link on May Day. Lots of stuff I did not know.

    I always enjoy your pictures and insights.
