May is the time when the flowers bloom in the UK and also the time that I receive them at their best, as it is my birthday. Yesterday I got from Dean and Nina the most beautiful bouquets. They give the house a picture perfect beauty. Flowers were also featured in our salad as we bought some chive flowers in the farmer's market in the morning.
