This morning's sun tempted hubby and I to go for a walk locally. None of the boys were keen to join us ( eldest is fully of cold and the other two still have a bad allergy...to walking! )
I decided we should head to the nearest woodland. Now the days are longer than the nights, and the sun has a little more heat, the landscape is looking prettier by the day.
All that fresh green makes my heart sing.
And the Celandines shone in the sunshine.
New Birch leaves unfurling.
and old trees with great texture.
Here I smiled at this patch of sunny woodland floor, with Primroses, Wood anemones and Celandines.
There's still a lot of sunlight reaching through the trees and giving the early plants a good start.
The woodland really felt a special place this morning.
The first Bluebells. How perfect.
I spent a lot of time staring upwards, trying to spot the birds we could hear, without any luck.
I'm not very good at recognising birdsong...but I did identify the Chiffchaff. It's song sounds like it's name. Hear it HERE.
