On the 6 May, we cut our first rose, like welcoming home an old friend. The scent so much sweeter than you can ever remember. A rainbow display of ranunculus in the polytunnel makes me want to go back and look at them again and again, getting any work done is a challenge. The hedgerows have come alive with an abundance of hawthorn flowers and our small orchard a delight of blush and white. We spend this month readying ourselves to plant out seedlings once the danger of frost has passed. With more frequent visitors starting to grace our flower field, everything feels lively after a slow and cold spring. At this point, the season ahead is a long one and we can't wait!
