"An amazing visit to No.fifty6. David and Julie have given me a greater understanding of The Great War. I now go home with many things to think about and will come back with many more questions. Thank you. David and Julie."

31st May 2019

May - “Here, leave desolate, passionate hands to spread
Violets, roses, and laurel with the small sweet twinkling country things
Speaking so wistfully of other Springs
From the little gardens of little places where son or sweetheart was born and bred.
In splendid sleep, with a thousand brothers
To lovers—to mothers
Here, too, lies he:
Under the purple, the green, the red,
It is all young life…” (Charlotte Mew, poet 1869-1928)

May is a capricious month – promises of summer, but hanging on to spring and changeable weather. Spring flowers and rapeseed give way to poppies and wheat. Some hot days, some chilly and wet, now getting more stable with pleasant May weather. May begins and ends with Fete Days in France on 1st May you give friends muguet – lily of the valley, to bring happiness, and the month ends with Ascension Day. It has been an extraordinary month with lots going on, stories to tell, only marred by one sad chicken story.
