Picking the bluebells in the merry month

This is probably one of the most rewarding months in the garden especially for flower lovers. It is the month where soft, sweet perfumed flowers open up their petals to welcome in the bees and hover flies. Gone are the fluctuating fast showers of April as May is usually a gentle and mild month with sunshine and soft breezes. It does provide rainfall but with less frequency.
