The greening of the season.

 

On Monday I joined my friends for a belated Beltaine jaunt up to the woods for a spot of magic and making merry. Walking home I admired the freshness of the sharp green Spring growth and then noticed these....the chartreuse [I can't tell you how many years I've been waiting to use that word on this blog😁] flowers of the English Oak. In all my born years I've never seen them before. So the old adage that every day's a school day certainly did ring true! Anyway with whatever you're up to this weekend I hope you have a splendid time. I shall be jangling the old Morris bells in the sunshine and there might be a bit of ale supping going on at some point during the proceedings! Thankfully it's in the town so we'll be on foot.

  1. I love the greens of May in so many shades and nice and fresh before the sun tones them down

    1. Some of them really are an acid green. The Spring is always so lush looking at this time of year. Arilx

  2. They are a bright and terrific sign of spring. I need to document the slight changes we've got now that there has been some sun.

  3. Now I begin to understand why it is asserted that oak supports so many species of wildlife.

    1. Everything is far more interconnected than people think...as a species we are so disconnected from nature. Arilx
