|California Mock Orange (Philadelphus lewissi)|
with this morning's rising sun shining on the
fragrant white blossoms.
As children growing up in Iowa, my friends and I used to make "May Day" baskets and fill them with whatever early flowers were available. Then we would hang one on each door handle of neighbors, ring the doorbell and run away so the person would not know who delivered the May basket.
Since I cannot deliver in person a May Day basket to you, I will share with you pictures of flowers in bloom here at MuRefuge on this gloriously sunny morning.
|Dwight's sculpture inscribed with Mu (the Japanese character |
we have loosely translated to mean "everything or nothing,"
for which MuRefuge is named), is in the background with
Point Reyes Meadowfoam (Limnanthes douglasii ssp. sulphurea) in front.
