Who’s heard of the expression “April showers bring May flowers” Whilst the weather may always be changeable, you can be sure that the saying is right about one thing, there are numerous flowers that bloom in May.

This month many of the world’s favourite blooms burst into life and deliver beautiful colours and scents to remind us that summer is on it’s way and winter is well and truly behind us!

Check out a few of our favourite May flowers:
