Song on May Morning

Now the bright morning star, day’s harbinger,
Comes dancing from the East, and leads with her
The flowery May, who from her green lap throws
The yellow cowslip and the pale primrose.
Hail, bounteous May, that dost inspire 5
Mirth, and youth, and warm desire!
Woods and groves are of thy dressing;
Hill and dale doth boast thy blessing.
Thus we salute thee with our early song,
And welcome thee, and wish thee long.
John Milton

Walk softly when you walk among Hawthorns

Walk softly or you might intrude the fairies.

A Hawthorn is considered a fairy tree, it is believed to be extremely bad luck to cut one down, remove branches, or even hang things upon it  in case you disturb the little folk.

The Hawthorn symbolizes fertility peace prosperity and binding. This tree is associated with sexuality and destruction. It was though that sleeping in a house with hawthorn blossoms would cause great misfortune.

Although on May Day the blossom are placed at the based of the May Pole.
The gathering of hawthorn blossoms was known has “goin a maying”.

In the legends of Cu Chulain a goddess pronounces a curse on him in crow form and flys to a thicket of hawthorns known has “hawthorn of the crow”. ¹.

Maj måned i København, Botanisk Have

Maj måned i Danmark er fantastisk. I København bobler byen af forår. Bliver bylivet for overvældende, er der mange oaser. Små stræder med cafeer, parker, søer, havnebusser og de mange havnebassiner. Mulighederne er mange, og jeg vil komme med inspiration til nogle af de steder, jeg holder af.

Se den interessante Information om Botanisk Have Her kan I også læse mere om de mange donationer der betyder, at København får et nyt enestående museum: Statens Naturhistoriske Museum. Det nye museum vil bestå af Geologisk Museum, Zoologisk Museum samt Botanisk Have. I kan også se projektet i det ovennævnte link.


Botanisk Have ligger få meter fra Nørreport Station. Rigtig god tur ❤
