This week I decided to head out to the local park to see if Spring was making herself known there and I was pleasantly surprised to see signs of Spring popping up.
There were patches of Snowdrops and Crocus’s all over the place, those at the base of trees looked particularly lovely.
I love the contrast of delicate flowers against the gnarly bark on the tree, a beauty and the beast moment.
I think these might be Helleborus, they are gorgeously different to the usual Spring blooms.
Perhaps the most Spring like of Spring things I saw was this partially built nest, it’s not all that easy to make out but it’s THERE, I shall be keeping an eye on it over the next few months to see what happens.
As I was heading home I stumbled upon where trees had been felled, so I borrowed these logs, now I’ve just got to wait for them to dry out before I can turn them in to something awesome!
Whilst plonking the stubby log in the garden I realised that Spring is definitely making a tentative arrival in our little patch of the world.
It’s not much, but the pops of colour sure do make a lovely addition to all the green.
I’m ridiculously happy to see Spring has finally decided to show herself, even if the grey and miserable weather leaves a lot to be desired.
