May Day and Maypoles and dancing around them, to herald the start of warmer weather.
Named for Maia, the Greek goddess of fertility. Which means it’s finally time for planting, starting vegetable and herb gardens (for those of us who live in the colder climes), mowing the newly green grass, spreading mulch, flower boxes, getting outside, enjoying the sunshine!
And, of course, enjoying drinks on patios and decks, and perhaps finally gathering with friends you haven’t seen for over a year.
So, what’s your fancy for this month of cooking?
