Well it's still loverly as can be here... Bluebells have been out for some time, and so too the apple blossom. Both of which in my way, I tend to use as general markers for this cross quarter (likewise snowdrops for Candlemass, primroses for Spring Equinox and Poppies for midsummer.) The Whitethorn is always too late for May Day (no doubt as you say, due to calendrical changes), so despite traditional associations I tend not to figure it in my own yearly timetable, though that's a purely personal omission. By the full moon it will indeed be fully out, right now the white blossoms are just peeping through the green leafage.

So anyone going to be doing seasonal things over the May bank holiday?
