May is all about . . .

 

. . . growth.

Everything around us is blossoming and blooming. Step outdoors and it’s possible to feel the energy; life surging through the new shoots, sap rising in the trees; leaves unfurling and buds bursting.

There are lots of little things that make May special – wandering home from the village with a plant chosen from the honesty box at No 92, nurturing the garden and seeing it grow, watching the birds raise their young, spotting solitary bees, picking posies, feasting on asparagus, and peeping into the copse beyond the house to admire the bluebells.

Here’s to this frothy month of floral delights, burgeoning hedgerows, and flourishing meadows.
