May is my favourite month. It feels like the summer and its warm weather are stretching out indefinitely before us, many of my favourite flowers and trees are in bloom, and the daylight hours are so long. Flowering cherry trees are the highlight of the month for me - they're so delicate and ruffly, pretty and fleeting.
We're going to start packing up this house over the next month or so, and we'll be moving to our new old forever home. I can't wait, but I will miss lots of things about this house. (It's for sale, and we just lowered the price, if you're interested!) This giant cherry tree is definitely one of the things I'll miss, along with the tulips, quince, woodland hyacinths, and the big willow tree. It's the house we brought our baby boys home to - it's always going to be a special place to me.
