May Blossom

 The hawthorne hedge  opening into flower.
In medieval times, the first buds were eaten by the local people, known as 'Bread and butter'.Tastes very green, good for the health and  full of vitamins.
The  blossoms , called 'May blossoms'  are part of the decorations used in May day celebrations, were morris men dance and the May queen parade.
