Blackbird singing it's heart out
from a Hawthorn bush,
raindrops and blossom.
For May I remembered the old saying,
" Ne're cast a clout til May be out "
which you can read about
I love Hawthorn blossom ( May ) but prefer Blackthorn
which yields beautiful blueish, purple Sloes in the Autumn.
The birds were nesting in May
and it rained and rained...
June has been a total washout too
but because of that, the hedgerows are lush
and full of life.
The birds a frenzy of activity feeding their young.
I decided to represent the gorgeous shades of pink Valerian
bursting out of nooks and crannies along lanes
and banks of daises growing along road sides.
They've been left longer this year before cutting
due to the rain
and are very pretty to see.
Apologies for being so late in posting
and thank you for taking part.
Here are the lovely ATC's for April
