(Almost. A Dogwood blossom getting ready to bloom.)
The NaBloPoMo theme for the month of May is Maybe. I will not be officially participating, as I have enough on my plate already with the outdoor commitment, but I plan to keep it in mind as I take photographs and post to my blog this month.

M and I finally got to take our new bikes out for a spin. We woke up to clear skies, sunshine, and a mild breeze. Perfect. It was a little cool (around 50), but after going up the first hill I was thankful for the cooler temperature. That hill was quite a doozy, followed by some smaller hills. I had already anticipated the big hills. The small hills, not too noticeable when I’m walking, are much more evident when I’m pedaling up them.
