The Merry Merry Month of May, studio update

Here we are again at my favourite time of the year, although that is a bit like admitting to having a favourite child. The longest day is still ahead of us, the swifts are screeching in the skies above Farncombe and the cow parsley is billowing in the lanes. Cow...
