I can't remember the May blossom being so early.
The hawthorn hedges that line the footpaths where we live are in full flower.
May blossom was thought to be full of powerful magic and was therefore never brought inside a house.
That's a superstition I remember hearing as a child and which I always observe.
The flowers drop as soon as the branches are cut anyway.
It always makes me think of dairies.
The creamy curds of flowers with their sour milk smell.
May blossom is apparently a symbol of female fertility.
Brides take note.
