As the spring slowly marches towards summer, I find great comfort in noting that all is as it should be in the natural world. May is always marked by a few things that hints at the warmer months to come...
Cow Parsley or Queen Anne's Lace as it is known in the U.S.
Peonies in bloom
Fields of Buttercups and grasses
Sweet little Speedwell flowers (thanks for letting me know Gill ;)
Dog roses in bloom
Lambs growing fat
and everywhere you look you see Hawthorn in flower
All this 'fleshing out' of the countryside warms my heart. I do love May, and there is more loveliness to come in June! Life is good in England :)
