There is stitchwort everywhere I look, and the white theme will become ever more dominant over the coming weeks as the various wild carrot species start to take over the scene completely. Meanwhile, in certain places the wild orchids are appearing. And soon, now, there will be meadowsweet all along the verges and the fragrance of honeysuckle will fill the air.
Our hawthorn tree is blossoming and so are the apple trees. Bees are buzzing and swallows are swooping. And as I walked around taking all these pictures yesterday, I couldn't help thinking... How sweet and wonderful it is to be alive at this glorious time of year!
