It's "May Blossom". The flower of the Hawthorn. Kent is awash with it at the moment.Usually found in hedgerows, this stubborn bush-like tree will grow in the most adverse circumstances, including in no-mans land during the 1st World War; where it allegedly gave rise to a few scares, as the blossom apparently smells remeniscentof a type of gas used on troops at the time.
Thanks....I'd forgotten which one it was. I like to make jelly with the haws later in the year!

I love vegetable gardening. This new blog will track my attempts to make my whole garden productive; both the kitchen garden and the ornamental areas front and back.
