Queen of May

Given that the royal family have had so much coverage in the past few days, it's probably about time I revealed that I, too, married someone who once held the title of 'Queen'.


Yes, that's Mags, centre stage. The crowd may not be waving flags, and they may be more conservatively dressed for the occasion, but nonetheless, there's a lot of public interest and support for the young girl wearing the crown.


Happy May Day, one and all!

  3. A splendid, timely post. I am reminded of the Bishop of London's sermon at the Royal Wedding: 'In a sense every wedding is a royal wedding with the bride and the groom as king and queen of creation, making a new life together so that life can flow through them into the future.'

  4. Happy May Day! What a wonderful photo. Is the Maypole still danced on May Day? How does one become the May Queen?

  6. Happy May Day to you and yours, as well, Martin. I remember as a little girl doing the Maypole thing, but it sadly faded into a lost tradition here in the US.

  7. Beltaine Blessings to you too, Martin! Our hills were awash with fires last night. It really was something to see. It's been too many years since we had a Maypole though. Such a lovely tradition.
