May 2003

  • A bright start to the month, enjoyed on the beach at Bournemouth
  • Across the county the fields of Oilseed Rape (Brassica napus) turn vivid yellow, as in this field near The Fleet
  • Woodland floors are carpeted with Bluebells (Endymion non-scriptus), Pamphill near Wimborne
  • The edges of coastal cliffs are tinged pink with the flowers of Thrift (Armeria maritima), on the summit of Golden Cap
  • And everywhere the colours in the scenery saturate – recently refurbished farmhouse on Holt Common
