Yes, it’s odd isn’t it? Someone says folklore dictates we may still have first while its in flower. I sincerely hope we don’t!
Is the missing word ‘snow’? Certainly snow in late May or June is not unheard of…
Oops, ‘frost’ is the missing word. Jolly well hope we don’t get the white stuff.
I hope that you’ve not been prematurely casting clouts or even worse taking May into the house!

This is beautiful, Cathy. Such a soft, lovely pink. Thanks for posting it!
There are more floriferous hedges than these and some with more variation in shades but these are still fairly good examples
It’s one of the landmarks of Nature’s year for me – the smell of hawthorn pervading everywhere. Along with the sight of mass daffodils in spring and the sound of the Dawn chorus. Love it!
And is the hawthorn later than usual, or am I just imagining it? If so, perhaps that’s why it is so floriferous this year?
You could be right. It does seem to be a long time coming. Hope you were still well clad in your “clouts”!
Too warm for much cladding recently!
A breath of English spring here!
