Calm before the storms…..

_DOI1496qqq-w

Early morning sunshine to welcome the day.  This is the calm before the predicted storms due to arrive later today.  Schools have now returned after the recent closures for CV19 which probably explains why,  despite this welcome splash of sunshine, that the Park was so quiet.  Being totally selfish….it makes it all the better to enjoy.

The winter Heather is in flower, though I am sure my favourite Silver Birch had large leaf buds back in earlier February.  Shadows are long in the Yew woods, but its nearly spring like by the top Oak….  Sunny it maybe but it still looked cold down by the Lake

The sun retained a watery look and looking across the winter barley field you could see the cloud cover building….  a precursor of the storms to come

Winter always seems to have a sting in its tail….lets hope that this the last of this winters “treats” and spring can make a smooth entrance…..Till then…

It can be confusing……

Beech Woods

Sunshine in the Beech Woods…… and it can be confusing.  It is at this time, when the seasons really do have to make up their minds.

Our Beech woodlands do send out a mixed visual message.

Autumn colours have come through the Winter, and now need to make way for new Spring growth.

Please Remember to ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
