May Flowers

"Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower."
~ Hans Christian Anderson

Beginning on Saturday May 1st, also known as May Day, there will be a gathering of vibrant and bright luminaries here at the Illuminated Perfume Journal. The festivities begin with our illustrious resident Bard, Ms. Beth, who opens the circle and beckons us to come dance around the maypole and celebrate this very, Merry Month of May.

Please join in the fun for daily reads on the theme of May flowers from writers and artists coming together from all parts of the world with their own unique voice. A few of our illustrious band of merry makers include:
