May is good.
Too often it gets lost in the shuffle around here...what with Surtex falling smack dab in the middle of it and all.
And I dig that.
And May smells like lilacs. No other month smells like lilacs. I mean, other months have other nice smells, but lilacs. Mmmm. Note to self: always remember to enjoy May even though I'm getting ready for the show. That might seem really obvious to most of you, but whole months really do disappear when preparing for this thing. Just like that. Whole months. No kidding.
But for right now, my bags are packed. Leaving for NY first thing in the morning. I'm excited about the show, but am already looking forward to the part of May that falls after I return home. The part where I catch up with my friends and family, work in the garden, start new projects...soak in the green-ness that is May.
Looking forward to catching up with you all then...because, remember, everything is always perfect...after the show.
