May Day

Last night we found a beautiful bouquet of flowers on our front doorstep!  The note said on one side, Happy May Day!, and on the other, You Are Loved.  Apparently, it’s tradition to leave a basket of flowers on someone’s front porch, ring the doorbell, and then run off (we looked it up).  Who knew?  Well, to the dear one who delivered such a beautiful display of kindness, THANK YOU!

There couldn’t have been a better end to our ‘May Day’.

We left our house at 6:50 a.m. yesterday to take our local weather man’s advice to visit the River Fork Ranch Trail.  It took us around 45 minutes to get there from Spanish Springs.  The trailhead is walking distance from Genoa and runs along the Carson River.  It is just a little over 4 miles round trip, and all level ground.  I’ll just share with you the stunning views with the photos I took and let them speak for themselves!

P.S., I may just take up the May Day tradition and bless someone else the way I was blessed!  Maybe you should, too!

    Oh my goodness, so gorgeous!!! The silos & the geese!! The mountains are amazing! Just beautiful. That’s so funny about the flowers, I saw them in your house yesterday & thought maybe they were from your yard!! So thoughtful!!

    1. I know (about the flowers!) I wanted to tell you about it, but I wanted you to read about it in the blog. A blessing! The geese were adorable, and I knew you would notice and appreciate the silos! They were my favorite 😊
