May 2019

The weather’s holding, allowing trees to hang on to their glory…

Scented May blizzard:
rowan blossoms fill the air,
Blown by blackbird’s song.

*****************************

Profusion of blossom…and scents…

Drunk on blossom scents,
giddy breeze caresses leaves,
staggering gently

(24/05/19)

*****************************

It’s going to be the Year of the Blossoms…

This damp May morning
hangs wisteria blossoms
with diamond droplets.

*****************************

Sunny but still chilly, everything is delayed…

Very late this year,
cuckoo calls through bare woodland.
The pressure is on!

(10/05/19)

*****************************

These Easterlies are playing havoc with the new growth…

Soft chestnut fingers,
burnt by un-Maylike east winds.
New beech leaves silk-soft.
