The second day of May and some of the hawthorn flowers are opening. With only a gentle breeze on this mornings walk, the scent from the flowers is lovely; the sweet perfume of May.
I have to apologise to everyone as I unwittingly quoted a bad link to Glennie Kindred’s website in my previous post. Here is the correct link. I hope you will look her up on her wonderful website:

I like Glennie Kindred’s website and may have to buy a book. I wish I could smell the hawthorn flowers, Ash. They’re beautiful; nice photos!
Because there was only a little wind and the sun was out even the scent of those few flowers was delicious! I wish I could bottle it! 🙋♂️
Let me try…yeah, I can smell the fragrance! Lovely pic, Ashley🙂
Indira, thank you! I think you know already what it smells like…heavenly! 💓🙋♂️
A tree that lives up to its name Ashley…. We call him the “Meidoorn” in dutch (this translates in “Mai Thorn”)
Yes, Rudi, you recognise it already! If only the wind would drop, then we could know the scent more regularly! Thanks for your comment. 🙋♂️
Those flowers are beautiful! I got my first camellia bloom this morning in my yard. Spring is here.
Hi Bridgette, my photography is not as good as yours but perhaps over the next few days I’ll take some better photos! 🌹🙋♂️
I’m looking forward to seeing more!
Oh, Ashley, the scent has reached Greece! 😉 👌🙏🌸
Haha! 🤣 But can you send some sunshine by return 😉🌹🙋♂️
Oh but of course ….as soon as we get it back! 🤣🌧🌩
Thank you, Lisa. 🌹🙋♂️
The flowers are beautiful! Love the artwork on Glennie Kindred’s website, thank you for sharing the link. 🦋🌷😊
I’m glad you checked her website. Happy Beltane, Jennifer 🌹🙋♂️
Lovely. No hawthorn here yet. Looking forward to that scent. X
Hi Sharon, thank you for your comments. Now there is such a strong cold wind the scent is lost. I do hope we get some warm windless days in the weeks ahead. Cow Parsley (I must check if that is what I’m seeing) is also opening. 🤗🌹x🙋♂️
My favourite tree 🌳
Thank you for your visit here and for following my blog. Hopefully, I can follow your posts too! 🙋♂️
Just in time!
Yes! Today the wind is blowing again and it’s cold. Hopefully, we’ll have a few calmer days soon as more of the flowers open. 🌹🙋♂️
Lovely website you have referred to! Thank you so much, Ashley 🙏💐
You’re welcome. I’m happy that you followed the link. 🙏
Thank you, Eunice 🙋♂️
You are welcome.
