The White Stuff
Blackthorn is the first to break cover, dotting the late winter landscape with splashes of welcome blossom even before their leaves unfurl.
This week, it’s a shout-out for the statement white stuff splashed across our mid-spring rural landscape and urban streets. They are the first gear before the micro seasons shifts up towards early summer and all the competition that will bring.
Let’s name check what I have seen today; horse chestnut flowers, cherry blossom, clouds, dandelion seed heads, cobwebs, a church steeple, cottages, a chalk trail, the National Trails acorn, Queen Ann’s Lace, lambs, daisies and ubiquitous hawthorn. What I didn’t see, but I know they are around include; a polar bear, swans and a lion.
The buttercups, cowslips and dandelions are also on show, contrasting nicely with the lush greens and pristine whites. Have I left anything out?
