The weather is getting warmer, the days longer – Spring should be here soon. Today was bright and Sunny and we decided to go out and hunt for evidence of new life and the new season.
Armed with our camera, we went out to the local park to check if we can spot some “spring signs”.
My little S and me had a good discussion on what the signs are – we decided to look out for flowers (mainly daffodils and snowdrops), birds & any nests, budding trees and plants (and butterflies if we are lucky / spring showers if we are not).
It was an eventful walk, with Little S finding clumps of daffodils soon. Then we saw the more colourful blooms which looked beautiful contrasted against the decayed brown leaves and twigs.
I explained to Little S about the old making way for the new, how these old leaves made food for the new plants and blooms.
We then saw a budding tree and tried to hunt for the mini beasts on the trunk.
We tried to see if Spring felt different to our eyes – the little S said that Spring was more green than brown. It is much nicer (and yes it was).
What signs can you see ???
