A tonic for city living
The beginning of May in our part of Scotland sees the last of the daffodils…
and the first of the bluebells.
Now, in the middle of the month, there are enough of the wild bluebells flowering in the woods that they are just beginning to show against the juicy green of their leaves.
While I can’t imagine that we will be lucky enough to have another really extraordinary bluebell year like last year, the bluebell season is always delicious. The air in the woods is already sweet and fresh with their powdery scent. Ahhh, imagine if we could bottle it, and when you uncorked the bottle out wafted not only the scent, but the sound of the birdsong filling the woods, and the rustle of the breeze in the new, bright leaves!
