May Day Ponderings start with a mosaic of flowers I’ve captured during Lockdown.
MayDay is pretty significant in Cornwall , usually, with Fairs and Parades.
In Essex where I grew up it was less significant, I remember watching, on TV, parades of military hardware in Communist Countries.
For no particular reason my primary school set up Maypole dancing classes. A riot of tangled ribbons where badly behaved boys sabotaged the less than accurate danced weavings of the girls. I think there was the promise of us doing a demonstration dance somewhere. I don’t think the Manor Street Primary School Maypole team was ever called into active service.
Here I am in Cornwall on one of its favourite festive days and I have nothing to report,but I can share a last image of pale blooms until next year.
May Day 2021, lets all get as giddy as Maypole dancers and hug each other until our bones hurt. It’s a date.
If you enjoyed Pandemic Pondering#18 about loo rolls , I’ve just read a fabulous blog written on 28th April 2020 about the history of toilet rolls.
