Sumer is icumen in,
Lhude sing cuccu!
Groweþ sed and bloweþ med
And springþ þe wde nu,
I do apologise to those Sepia Saturday followers in the Southern hemisphere for the parochial quotation, I know from their point of view "Sumer is agoeth out". Whether summer is coming or going, the month of May is almost upon us and I have a folksy archive image for you this week, which is appropriately described in the catalogue of the Oregon State University Digital Archives as "May Day With People Around The May Pole". The picture, which dates back to 1920, was taken in the Neil Creek Farm Bureau Community, which, I assume, is in Oregon. As far as the "themers" are concerned, it is yours to make of what you will - you can really let your imaginations go on this one. And if you don't want to play themes, it doesn't matter - just share an old image and some new thoughts. In either case, post your post on or around Saturday 28 April, link it to the list below and then try and visit as many of the other participants as possible.
In line with our new policy, here is a sneak preview of our next two archive images. For those who prefer an element of surprise, close your eyes now!
Such exciting things are for the future. For now, let us concentrate on the carefully co-ordinated rustic dance that is Sepia Saturday.
