As it happens, I've taken photos on the first of May from the same spot every year I've been here, and I thought it might be interesting (more like alarming) to compare them. Also see Thanksgiving for a similar study.
It would appear that spring was arriving a little sooner each year, except that 2018's long, miserable winter made spring late. Actually, it did away with spring altogether and pushed us straight into summer, with highs in the 90s for the first week of May. Only three or four days after the above image was taken, it looked just as it had in 2017.
This year I shot May Day from my living room for the first time. Finally! It's also the greenest I've yet seen.
