April 28th – Almost bang on schedule, the may blossom – Hawthorn – is coming out along the lanes, towpaths and hedges of the area.
This outwardly white blossom which was bad luck according to my grandmother if brought into the house, is actually quite colourful if you look at the small flowers closely.
It’s one of those that is really beautiful, but few ever look at closely. A boost for bugs and bees too, who adore the blossom.
It never looks better then when bejewelled with rain and catching the light.
