The May Or St Mary's
Hawthorn blossom is also known as 'May Blossom'; it blooms in the month of May. The well known Scottish aphorism 'Ne'er cast a clout till May be oot' is derived from this fact.It was generally greeted with frustrated derision by children who were prevented from stripping off and running barefoot at the first hint of warmth after winter. Defying the edict usually resulted in a heavy cold. Some years blossom is more prolific than others and in the spring of 1998 the May blossom was spectacular.
