The primroses are now stretching their fragile stems for one last glimpse of the sun before being overwhelmed by the fresh verdant grasses which will doom them to their hibernation . Stitchwort ,toadflax , bluebells and borridge have all come into their own and the first signs of cow parsley and Queen Anne's lace are unfurling in our Devon hedgerows .The May blossom is in full flower and the trees are donning their soft green mantels .The white candles are appearing on the horse chestnuts - it is all very satisfactory- May is glorious in Devon and the early signs are promising . The rooks are building high , oak is out before ash which means we are in for a splash rather than ash before oak , in for a soak . Country folklore - who knows - but I like to believe it is true .
