May Day

May Day or International Workers Day marked by protests on both coasts of the US and across the world.
Economic issues, austerity measures, immigrants’ rights, and Occupy Wall Street protesters, all made for a universal day symbolized by thousands of people in the streets and unfortunately some disturbance here in California.

On the home front, the annual spring battle between the ground squirrels that invade the outdoor spa and the owners of the spa rages. This year the invaders are more convinced than ever that the spa is theirs and show no sign to abandon it.
I wonder if a sprig of lily of the valley, symbol of May Day in France, would convince the occupants to leave peacefully my deck.
