May and Rowan

On Blacka the two blossoming attractions crop up where they wish and it's still possible to find one that you had not been aware of. Rowan is more numerous here so the cream colouring predominates.

That helps the more vivid white of the thorn to stand out the more when you find it. May blossom can overwhelm a small tree to the extent that you can almost fail to be aware of leaves.

It's a good year when rain holds up for long enough to give a long flowering season.

What a lovely blog. I only found it today. Over the years, I have parked up so many times on Shotts Lane to walk up onto Blacka Moor in all weathers. It's amazing that you have been able to sustain the blog for so long. Your passion for the area must be boundless.

Thanks for your kind comment. I'm now off to explore your blog. Local blogging is a kind of local democracy I think and often a better informed source of what's going on.
