If you go down to the woods today – February

If you go down to the woods today – February

If you go down to the wood today signs of Spring are everywhere even though the temperatures are still dipping below freezing.

Woodpeckers are drumming, the treetops are alive with singing birds, buds are appearing on the trees, primroses are beginning to flower and in the coming weeks frogspawn will cover the streams and ponds.

  1. Yes, lovely photos capturing the early signs of spring, but will it all be covered by snow later this week?
