I loved this photo! it made me laugh that both Stewart and Delaine look less than impressed about having there photo taken at 6 in the morning before going to watch the crowning of the May Queen.

It an annual event that we attend each year on the 1st of May.  It has been such an inspiration to me to be involved in such an old Pagan tradition that has continued in some form to this day. 

This is were my interest in Banner's has come from.  This is the 1st in a series that i intend to do.  The colour are quite muted for me, but i felt that they were the most appropriate for the scene.

'Make Merry' is a quote i found in a British folk art book that was talking about the history of these traditions and how the whole town of village would have been involved in or attended in a massive celebration.  Its a shame that now there is a limited number of regulars that attend the 'May Day' celebrations here, and in many towns the traditions are fizzling out.
