I drove into Craven Arms this morning for supplies and the drive took my breath away. The whole countryside is a mass of vibrant green and frothy white. The hawthorn bushes are in full flower – long racemes of white on those not managed and big blobs of white on those that have been cut. The verges are full of white meadowsweet with the odd bit of colour provided by the red and pink campion.
Everything feels calm and relaxed after a stormy April, just getting ready for what, we hope, will be a long hot summer!
