'Hail, bounteous May, that dost inspire
Mirth, and youth, and warm desire!
Woods and groves are of thy dressing,
Hill and dale doth boast thy blessing.'
                                                     John Milton

May also brought the need for urgent sowing of the last area where dredgings from the lake had been deposited. The ground had finally had its surface evened, leaving earth that was still rough in places and compacted in others. A working party was hastily summoned and on Tuesday morning it set to with rakes and forks tp provide a more receptive surface for grass seed. Luckily Ken had already put in several hours of work the previous Saturday, reducing the size of the task considerably.
