Green is the colour of May. This verdant month means two things, hop training and the re-greening of the countryside. No hay has been cut, no corn ripening yet, the countryside simply turns into a spectacular panorama of different shades of green. I love it and from March onwards always look forward to the trees getting their new leaves. The wait can seem long and drawn out. Of course the blossom and wild flowers are rattling out too and it amazes me every year how each flower perfectly coordinates with the particular green if its own leaves. So many beautiful flowers, the countryside is awash with colours, but for me the one colour that truly depicts May has to be green.
