I remember when I was young,every May day, (on or around), our mother would take us to Old Westbury Gardens, a magical gold coast estate on Long Island, and we'd dance around the May Pole...(I remember going the wrong way on more than one occassion fouling up the whole dance to the cries and snickers of all the other kids...LOL) I don't remember much more than that...although I still have an odd sort of "feeling" memory...a very pleasant and magical one. They don't celebrate anymore, which I find very sad.
There's a Web Ring of Morris Dancers :D

Thank you for the dreamy post. It's been beautiful here in Brooklyn all week, but there must be nothing quite like welcoming in the May in the UK...

*wistful sigh*
