May. I must be getting old and distracted. Back when I was younger my wife and I would dance around a maypole on the first of may, ribbons flapping in the breeze along with the naked bodies of our three little boys who were big fans of our pagan holiday. Now the boys are big and hairy and the first of May passes with hardly a nod of recognition. Let's not let that happen again! So let's talk about May in west Sonoma County. But first let me say that I crawled under the house last month and sawed into some pipes and rediscovered the joys of plumbing while I built an outdoor shower by the hot tub. Don't worry....no one can see you down there. You can even dance around a maypole if you like. I will likely never use the indoor shower again except perhaps on those frosty winter mornings...but then again the shower head is huge so the water envelops nicely...give it a go! May is a great time of year in Sonoma County. Many of the fields are still covered in mustard blooms and the hills will be green and wavy with grass until the end of the month. The river is still way to cold to swim in, but the creeks are full and there are still wild flowers. Overall a great time!!
