Spring Sunset

May really is the most beautiful month, isn’t it?  The wild garlic beginning to open and release its tangy odour; the bluebells opening and tilting their heads and fresh new leaves bursting forth. Speaking of trees, can anyone identify the two trees in the above photos, the pale-green leafed one (I thought it might be common whitebeam but now I’m sure it’s not) and the one that looks almost like purple sprouting broccoli?  Searching for ‘trees that look like broccoli’ ends up yielding a more literal result and the pale green one has us stumped, though it grows everywhere up here and adds a lovely brightness to the surroundings.

On our evening walks, I’ve noticed some wonderful skies too.  From perfect pastel affairs with thin, whispy cirrus clouds to the big, fluffy clouds (and sometimes grey rain-bearers we’ve had of late) above.  Ahhh, May, you lovely month.
