Happy May!

Happy May to all my friends and readers

New Calendar picture with this
beautiful watercolour painting by Hanka Koebsch

"Gezeichnet von Meer und Wind"
"Marked by Sea and Wind"

May is the third month in the year to have 31 days. Its name comes from the Greek goddess Maia, her Roman equivalent being the goddess of fertility, Bona Dea. Probably because everything seems to bloom and flower in this month. One more reason to be the month of marriages in the Northern hemisphere. 

The birthstone of this month is the emerald which stands for love and success, a gemstone o one of the most beautiful green colours you can find. It also gave Ireland its poetic name because the "Emerald Isle" is also the most beautiful green one. 

Enjoy this month with the beautiful watercolour painting by Hanka Koebsch. I love the sea, so I appreciate any picture of it.

You can find many more wonderful pictures on their website here.

    1. How lovely to see you here, Eva Susanne. I didn't know you had a blog, let alone two. Will have to start following you, even if I will probably never do any knitting again ... well, who knows ...

      Have a great weekend!
