Ferns and Bracken in Big Wood

I know I have said it before and indeed several other bloggers have said the same thing….’it has been a strange year so far’.  The weather and the seasons have not run to the usual pattern. Here in our little corner of England we haven’t had rain for weeks now, even when predicted it seems to have passed us bye.  It has also been rather warm.

So I find it rather surprising that in the woods everything is still coming on, rich lush growth and still sprouting that bold and bright green related to spring and not missing the lack of rain…….all rather nice.

Not a sound apart from Bird song, lots of tweeting so I guess lots of new hatchlings trying to find a safe home in the woods.

There has also been some human activity…someone has tried a little bit of woodland art (or do they call it sculpture?)
