~ May Day ~


~ HAPPY MAY DAY!!!!! ~
~ Friends & Folk ~

I LOVE when my 'friends' come to visit with us here on the farm ~
look who showed up just yesterday alone:

a beautiful Scarlet Tanager-boy!



I just love to see him with his red jacket & black sleeves & tail ~
 all he needs is a dapper little top hat & walking stick!


and
a Lunar Moth ~
a strange but oh so beautiful creature that comes to our lamp posts occasionally...







he is perfect in every way 
and gently climbed onto my hand for a long while ~




 oh! hello!
{sweet face}







I tucked him down onto our iris' to rest, 
and when I came back to check on him he had flown off on a new adventure… 




 even the deer came for a visit around suppertime…
here they are {5 of them} outside our keeping room window ~







 and 
even Mizz Nancy came out for a visit!
hearer she is test-driving our new Floor Frame
{Peter's grin says it all}




Nancy gives our Standing Floor Frame a Thumbs Up ~ with hook in hand!
Thanks Nancy!
{yours will be ready soon Nancy-girl, along with your hook and cutter board}




and here are my offerings for May's
Early Work Mercantile

two naive samplers for you!




Hoping your Sunday is a peaceful & creative one,
~ filled with all kinds of Friends!

~ Blessings from the Farm ~

Oh, a glorious May Day at Notforgotten Farm! I cannot believe that beautiful bird…and I've never seen a Luna Moth in person (in moth?). My little grandson would go wild to see one! Hope the rest of your day is as gorgeous as it started!
