Plenty to do...

When Spring begins come March  the woodlands and countryside awaken after their winter slumber, Snowdrops and Primroses bursting into bloom followed by carpets of Bluebells as far as the eye can see. As nature takes us through her seasons, there will be an abundance of wild fruits Bilberries, Strawberries and Blackberries, there will aslo be a delight of birdsongs to enjoy from cuckoos, skylarks and adorable garden birds, and in the sky a wonderful display of aerial acrobatics put on by the Red Kites and Buzzards, not to mention the little swallow.
