More from 10th May, Sunday

Many of the shrubs are still in flower, with white flower clusters and dark green leaves. Much of the hawthorn, which has such a fine aroma, is still in flower, but many of the flowers have gone over and are now brown. The cherry laurel flowers are now completely over but they are coming into fruit. Likewise, the cherry trees which had such wonderful blossom are now producing green and pink fruits, which the birds will undoubtedly raid as soon as they become ripe.
