This spring has been very special in Waingroves and the community woodland as we had a visit from the biggest Easter bunny I have ever seen!
Spring is probably my favourite season, it’s about new life; flowers, trees, birds, wildlife and probably us too as we spring-clean our lives along with cleaning out the green house, getting rid of winter rubbish to the amenity site and loosing an hours sleep!
Spring started with snowdrops and dainty white blackthorn blossom. In April, the spectacular daffodils, wood anemones and bluebells and we all look forward to the pink/red ‘May blossom’ of the hawthorn. Woodland volunteers have been busy putting up bird, bat and owl boxes; collecting discarded tree branches and generally tidying up.
