The English Spring sun was very bright and strong and made the whole landscape give up a beautiful bouquet of Spring scents. Here are five of them:
1 The green, sappy smell of young nettles - strong, deep, aromatic and astringently assertive;
2 The honeyed smell of white blackthorn blossom - intensely, warmly sweet, envelopingly heady and bee-glad;
3 The elusive smell of white violets in a bank - fragile and fleeting, fragrantly reminiscent of a bygone age;
4 The imperceptible scent of deep pink cherry blossom - faint, almost indiscernible as if, with such beautiful, frothy, ballet-skirt flowers, scent is not needed to attract pollinating insects;
5 The pale, sunshine smell of celandines - another green scent but lighter more polleny than the strong, verdant note of the nettles;
