I've said many times that May is my favorite month of the year: it is lush and green and full of hope. It is in May, I arrange and plant the many pots in my garden. It is in May I get to shop for all the annuals that will provide color through to the fall. It was in May that I was given a new beginning with my cancer as on the 29th I will celebrate my 'other' birthday -- the day of my surgery. See! May is looking more and more like the month of Thanksgiving! Come to think of it -- even my car looks like a cornucopia of gifts!

I subscribe to Dr. PM Forni's concept of Civility. I was born in South Philadelphia and grew up in the 'burbs. I love soft pretzels and cheesesteaks, the Phillies, the Eagles, and San Diego. I love being Mom, Aunt Kathy, Nona Kathy, and Teacher. I spend a lot of time in my gardens in the spring and summer, and in the winter I plan what I'm going to plant.
