Although the flowers of the hawthorn are called mayflowers, I really think it ought to be the bluebell, A week or two into May and they start to flower in British woodlands.

I have some bluebells growing in the garden, some planted under the trees at the far end in the supposedly ‘wild’ area, alongside the cowslips. The cowslips are cross breeding with other primula and seem to be spreading so well that I suspect that they may may be a rather more hardy variety than a native cowslip. The bluebells were given to me by my father, the bulbs dug up from his garden, I’m going to have to identify what variety they are, although I suspect they are either Spanish bluebells or a hybrid rather than the native variety,
