|sans espine, without thorns|
|Roses in a variety of colours|
|Yellow roses can mean jealousy|
|Il n'est rose sans espine, There are no roses without thorns, often used to talk about love|
May must be the most green or eco- friendly month. No need for central heating or air- conditioning. You can ride your bike without fear of bronchitis or dehydration, you can stay out in the sun all day , you can sleep at night. There is the whole of the summer to look forward to , There is beauty all around us. No wonder poets have been inspired by May for centuries.
Just one problem here , now is the time to change over our wardrobes and shake out all our summer dresses, but why oh why don't they fit .?
All through the winter
To keep myself warm
I ate bananas and potatoes
And polenta made with corn
But now the summer's coming
I'm regretting all of that
Cos looking in the mirror
I realise I am fat .
