The air was warm and humid and smelled green and of the earth. There were heady, musky scents of May blossom and cow parsley, this year flowering at the same time. Finally the weather had changed from wet and cold and we have had a warm sunny afternoon so I decided on a quick walk around the Woodland burial ground to see if there were any butterflies about. There were very few on the wing with only 3 small whites and a single large white observed. There were none at all in the main cemetery. The cold and dry weather of April and the cold and very wet in May has caused everything to be late.
