Happy May Day!

Bongo and a Globe Mallow under a signToday is May Day, and even though we didn’t get much in the way of April showers we still got May flowers. I told my person I would do a flower post special for her for May Day.

See, I’m nice to her sometimes.

We get these orange flowers almost every spring and summer here, but for some reason last year they didn’t show up. I think they didn’t like our unseasonably late April snow dump. All we saw were one or two little orange blossoms all summer.

But this year they’re back out again, and I think even more of them are coming out to make up for last year. They’re called Globe Mallow.

This is what the plants look like.

Here’s a sprig to put in your May Day basket.

But this next globe mallow really decided to outdo the others.

It became a hat for this prickly pear cactus.

Oh yeah, I just remembered. Isn’t there supposed to be a May Pole or something?

Guess I’ll just wind my leash around my person. I don’t see any other poles around here. She’ll have to do.
