Spring has Sprung

Bluebell, Blue Sky

Finally. Several days of hot May weather have caused Nature to catch up quickly and the trees and hedgerows have gone from brown to fresh spring green in a matter of days. Wild flowers are out in profusion - the bluebells are particularly good at the moment - and the birds are going crazy with their vocal mating rituals. I read recently that it is possible that a prolonged cold spring could give way to a long hot summer with plenty of sunshine. That would be nice. Finger’s crossed!
