Call for Submissions – Festival 35

May Day is one of just two holidays I can think of on the Western European calendar in which dead trees play a central role. But we’ll be celebrating here not with a May Pole but with flowering maples, cherries, oaks, elms — you name it. The host of the May 1 edition of the Festival, Peg at Orchards Forever, requests a special focus on trees in bloom for this edition, especially from bloggers in the northern hemisphere where spring will be well underway. Email your links to amberapple [at] msn [dot] com, or submit via the online submission form, on or before April 27.

If emailing, as always, put “Festival of the Trees” in the subject line, and please feel free to send in links to any appropriate blog posts, photosets, or other sites you run across in the course of your web wanderings. We do anticipate, however, that fewer folks will remain indoors this month as warmer spring weather spreads northward. Just remember to bring a digital camera and/or pocket notebook with you on your expeditions afield so you can share whatever you find — especially those blooming trees!
