a red hawthorn tree

A red hawthorn tree in the bottom of The Field.
The tree looks like it is covered in a thousand tiny rosebuds.
Unlike the native hawthorn, the red hawthorn has double flowers.


And there are plenty of the traditional white blossomed variety nearby.

the bluebell wood


Woodlands in May.
The fresh green leaves on the beech trees.
The carpet of bluebells with their intoxicating scent.
Dappled spring sunshine. 
Nothing beats a British woodland in May.
