May brings the hope of the scenery turning from brown to green, but the process is never as quick as you think it’s going to be.

Along these shores, it’s not until May when the average temperature at sunrise begins to creep above freezing. There is still a near-guarantee of snowfall during May, whether it happens at sunrise or another time. With a little luck, by the end of May, trees will begin to turn green, buds will take shape, and you’ll start to smell the fragrance of lilac trees.
