Jak's Tales gave everyone a chuckle when she told her story of a rabbit called 'TDR', which amused me too as it is one from my childhood. Lovely Lady never fails to amaze me what she gets up to. She is (and I know she won't mind me saying this) a slightly built lady but - hell - she packs a punch. How she manages to build stone walls when most of the stone probably weighs more than her - I shall never know!
Aril from Gnat Bottomed Towers (brilliant name) joined us for the first time and provided some excellent quirky interpretations. Aril has a knack for finding the eccentric and downright odd - an enjoyable read. Julie from Julie's Scrapbook had me all excited when she shared her 'mechanical' - 'Speedweve' I got all giddy and with her help am getting myself one. Curious? So was I - go and check out her Scavenger Hunt post.
Susan from Granny Smith's Quilting shared a very varied selection this month - she does gad about and find some interesting images! My favourite was certainly the rusty 'Squiggles'. Last, but not least, J from SimpleNaturalHandmade did hers in a montage style again - I really do like that. Her stories of her dogs, crochet and life are a pleasure to read.
Edited to add ... Fil from Fil Place joined in, a little late, but who cares, she has a lovely post full of beautiful photos and words, please pop over and have a look x
Thank you every one.
Now for something different.
Over the months I have been sent suggestions for inclusion in the list of words I put up each month. I now have a goodly selection which I will present to you.
The instructions this month are slightly different but the end result will be the same.
The list is much longer than usual, however PLEASE ONLY CHOOSE TEN WORDS. I have omitted 'My own choice' this month as the selection is so wide and encompassing. This should be fun. Our deadline date will be - Friday May 26th. Remember - choose only 10 words from the list.
June is slightly different again - I take part in the #30DaysWild run by The Wildlife Trusts each June. So, along with hundreds of other folk, post a photo a day on a theme of nature.
As normal, I will put up our regular list of 10 words for June which will be also on a theme of the great outdoors. I am not asking you to take part in the #30DaysWild but do suggest you have a look and see what is going on.
I will remind every one of details nearer the time,
until then - here are May's Mega-list of aMazing words -Enjoy!!

Finally (if you have stuck with me this long - well done you, a medal for perseverance is in the post),
a photo from my weekend.
