Damselfly visits garden

First of the year’s Damselflies, seen on the Solomons Seal plants at the edge of the garden pond. Either Common Blue or Azure, I didnt take proper note of the markings at the time.

May Day

I feel I should have done something to mark this traditional day but it was an uneventful day spent partly at home attending to accounts and finances. Partly outside mowing a lawn for a client whose pastime is Lacemaking, a traditional skill in itself.

The May blossom is well and truly out, the tree in our garden is decked in white. Looking its best.
The Crab Apple blossom has peaked and beginning to fade.
My Viburnum sargentii ‘onodaga’ is coming into its own with delicate flower heads .
