This month's birthstone is the emerald. The original idea of birthstones is said to be an ancient one while the modern list was defined in 1912.
I wonder if May made them think spring green which then led to the emerald.
Oops, digressing. This post will not educate you about the emerald, we have our expert magpie for that.
What this post is supposed to do is paint a picture of May for you.
Imagine a lush spring meadow in green.

Now get off your computer and go out there instead before it suddenly isn't May anymore. Don't miss spring, it's one you'll never get back! :-)
