A place to en­joy May days

Landscape (UK) - - Readers' Letters -

I loved read­ing ‘The gar­den in… May’, since it re­minded me of all the won­der­ful things about this merry month. Our or­na­men­tal cherry tree comes into bloom at this time of year. It was given to my gran as a gift for her ruby wed­ding an­niver­sary and planted in the front gar­den. It has now grown so tall that the pink blos­som peeks in through our bed­room win­dow. I love ly­ing in bed watch­ing the branches softly sway­ing as the wind splashes ‘pink snow’ across the front lawn. I can­not think of a more beau­ti­ful gift: a per­fect sym­bol of love. My gran, now wid­owed, loves to sit un­der the fra­grant branches and soak up the magic. I of­ten join her, and we sit in com­pan­ion­able si­lence, star­ing at the won­ders of May; one of the loveli­est months of all. My gran is 88 years old and mar­vel­lous.
