Ne'er cast a clout...
....'Til May is out:
And here it is! There have been bits of hawthorn or May blossom open for the past few days here- but this is the first day there have been lots of may trees flowering together. Which traditionally means we're allowed not to wear vests- but more importantly means there are going to be lots and lots of happy bees and hoverflies about at the moment!
These trees are at the Grangeover Way/Yoxall Drive nature reserve site that we have permission to maintain. We're going to be consulting local residents in the next few weeks about their ideas for the area: Hopefully we're going to be able to get some more trees planted and an open scrub area maintained for a gorgeously biodiverse area for people and animals to enjoy.
