As each year comes to a close I like to look back at my photos to remind myself of some of the best times. May in particular is often an outstanding month for me. There are some special family events to celebrate and usually the weather is warm which gives us the chance to be outside and enjoy the sunshine after a long dreary winter.
So what are the best things about May in a country garden?
Well May is always the month that the garden really bursts into life.
There are fresh green shoots on the trees, wild flowers are blooming, the fruit trees are sparkling with pale pink and white flowers and in the wood there is a carpet of English Bluebells.
Individually they are beautiful.
Together they are truly breathtaking.
In 2013 there were just a few of the beautiful deep pink Red Campion flowers. There were several clumps of the pale pink Spanish Bluebells.
If you’d like to know more about the difference between English and Spanish Bluebells then just click the photo to see the article.
Colin from A Tramp In the Woods has also written about Bluebells this month (and the wildlife you’ll see in a Bluebell Wood)
