If There's A Bustle In Your Hedgerow

..don't be alarmed now. It's just a spring clean for the May Queen.
(Plant/Page, Stairway to Heaven)

"The May Queen is the stillness around which everything revolves...folklorists have identified her with...Maia, Roman Goddess of Springtime, of Growth and Increase..."
The Beltane Fire Society


  1. Ohmigosh...Maia is such a mini you. Only with flowers. =)

    She and Grace need to open a dandelion florist service, as we have also been getting enormous dandelion bouquets in the house.

  2. Maia is me in this picture (only, fortunately, she has a chin, unlike me) -- but she is also very much my great-aunt E., and I am looking forward to my sister or my mom contributing their thoughts to that observation.

    Hee to the dandelion florist. Our yard could certainly be the supplier. At least SOMETHING grows up here!

  3. Oh my god the darling.

  4. So cute! And so big!

  5. Definitely Great Aunt E. She would have loved this picture.

    Very Great Aunt E. Seemingly prim, but full of character.

  7. I told G that you had a picture of Maia up, and she was holding flowers, and what kind did G think they were? "Flowers!" "Yes, but what kind?" "Pretty!" "Yes, but which ones do you like best and always want to pick?"

    "DANDY LIONS!!!!!"

  8. She DOES look just like you! What an adorable picture.
