It’s gone at last! April in London has been a drab, chilly affair – overcast and wet, with one or two days of blistering sunshine, only to end on a very cold note (11C yesterday)
Welcome May – my favourite month – all froth and fulsome but the cooler weather has delayed Spring somewhat and whilst there is time, I can still appreciate the contours of trees before the armature of trunk and branch is hidden.
After all why do we bother with garden art and sculptures when we have these?
And all the while of course there are the evergreens like pine and cedar which give continual colour and texture. Come the leafy months, we tend not to notice them.
Here’s hoping May is balmy!
