The Wheel & The Maypole

Today our very own Ulla took ribbons and paper flowers and decorated our quiet vendor's pole in Castle in the Air's front window to help us celebrate the longer days and the coming of summer. We didn't have much sun today in Berkeley, but when Ulla added a wheel of flowers near the top of the maypole, this Scandinavian symbol reminded us that everything comes and everything goes, and that sunshine doesn't have to come from the sky to brighten the day. Happy May Day!

THANK YOU for the post! Hopefully the sun will peek through the clouds and give us a genuine May to celebrate!

I just saw the pictures of the amazing may tree on Ulla's blog. What a wonderful job she did!!!
We were lucky to have some beautiful and sunny days here in Germany to start into the merry month.

Happy May days to you!!!
