Waiting for the spring

Ahh – foiled by the school holidays (again!).  With no hope of any quiet to sit and write, here instead is a photograph post.  All these pictures have been taken since Christmas as I impatiently wait for spring to arrive in our wood. (Some of the photographs are taken from my Instagram (@treesofsanctuary) and Twitter (@peaceinthewoods) posts, and some are new.)

“I learned something new today – that another name for ivy is lovestone because of the way it holds on to the rock.”

“I found this funny fungi in the wood – it seems to be feeling the cold and has gone all furry!”

You can see the different freezing events in this ice from the wood – it’s like tree rings.  How cool is that?! (Well, below freezing obviously 🙂 )
