Walked: 18 May 2008
I love May. I love the May blossom covering the hedges like a heavy dusting of snow. I love laburnums dripping with yellow flowers, I love the warm bright sunshine. I love the vivid green colour of the countryside. I love that everything is growing very quickly.
The second picture shows elderflower budding up ready to flower, alongside some holly. Holly grows very slowly, but in May it puts on a few leaves. I've never noticed this before, but when the new leaves sprout, they're soft and fluffy!
