Spring to life!

Spring to life with Wiltshire Life's May issue. From inspiring walks among the county's wildflowers, to a wander round Wiltshire's Venice, this issue brings you all you need to get the fullest enjoyment out of county life.

Plan a bank holiday trip to the Great Tisbury Brocante, an antiques, collectables and flea market in south Wiltshire, or perhaps we'll tempt you over the border for a day out in the 'Independent State of Frome'.

Michael Marshman visits the village of Winsley, while Nicholas Fogg tours a new distillery on the Ramsbury Estate to discover vodka that tastes of Wiltshire.

We've got Shakespeare for you and chats with auctioneer Paul Viney, TV gardener Charlie Dimmock and Henry Herbert, one half of The Fabulous Baker Brothers.

We look at HM The Queen's racehorse trainers in Wiltshire, find out how to wear a hat (brilliantly), meet a bee farmer and provide long spring and summer afternoons of fun with a pull-out-and-keep spotter's guide to butterflies. Plus don't miss what BBC gardener Anne Swithinbank has to say about the best blossom for your plot.
