I took Skye our for a walk in the May sunshine and she enjoyed a god run through the fields of wild flowers and grasses.
The buttercups were as good as I have ever seen..
Being May the hawthorn was also at it's peak.
The most common folk name for the Hawthorn is the May Tree. The
may blossom appears on the tree at the beginning of May in the south of
England, at the time of the Beltane or May Day celebrations, when people
and houses were decked with may blossoms ("bringing home the May"). The
popular rhyme "Here we go gathering nuts in May" is thought to have
been sung by the young men, gathering not "nuts" (which do not grow in
May) but "knots" of may blossoms for the May Day Celebrations. These
celebrations included a May Queen, representing the Goddess, and a Green
May, representing the God and the spirit of the new vegetation.whitedragon article about hawthorn
