Today’s FMTSO themes are Cinco de Mayo and Mother’s Day. I don’t celebrate either of them! * What we do celebrate here in Sweden is the 30th of April – Walpurgis Night – and the 1st of May – Labour Day. On Monday this week at my other blog, Beyond the Lone Islands, I had a post about a students’ parade on Walpurgis Night. The photo above is from watching people starting to gather.
We had an unusually warm and sunny end of April. The first week of May has been rather chilly though (back to winter jacket again), so after the first sudden explosion of greens and colours, things have been slowing down a bit. Just as well perhaps from some points of view…

Just looking at these makes my nose tickle!
* PS. We do have a Mother’s Day, but not this week! Ours is the last Sunday in May.
