May Greenness 2

Writing about Bluebell woods, I spoke about the overpowering smell: well, another nostalgic May woodland smell is from the Wild Garlic. The ground of the woods around Bath are covered with the delicate snow-flakes of their white flowers. As a child I loved to eat the leaves on walks- together with the clover-like leaves of the Wood Sorrel. In my search for the ultimate Bluebell wood I was yet again entranced by the Pre-Raphaelite detail and colour of these exquisite, very English woods.
