Hawthorns in blossom!

It is May Second! Yesterday, May First, is traditionally the day when the Mayflowers bloom! (That is why they are called Mayflowers, icyww). "Mayflower" being another name for the Hawthorn tree, or Craeteagus sp.

These are what Hawthorn blooms look like:

I wish I could post what they SMELL like! Which is also...quite bracing, at times.

Feel free to post pictures of flower blossoms!
