Life is busy here. There is a lot going on in our village and we have had old friends to stay. The garden and the animals need time and the weather has been lovely.
Out on the heath, at the bottom of the hill, crab apple blossom has fallen but the hawthorn (May) is at its best.
This old hawthorn has branches draped in lichen and a secret bunch of mistletoe that has been there for years.
Late on a sunny afternoon, the May blossom is beautiful against blue skies.
