THE LONDON PLANE.....
The small violets that nestle in between the roots of this tree have opened.
They have also spread...... I had to be careful where I stepped!
For the first time I noticed a hole made by a wood pecker. I'm sure it wasn't there before....
There are still no sign of leaves,
but in the hedgerow there is blossom,
and along the road side daffodils have started to show...
Signs of Spring are less noticeable further down the road where my
other tree stands.
THE MIGHTY OAK...
No pretty violets round this trunk.
But the field where the oak grows is starting to show colour while the oak holds tight onto last years leaves.
And despite the broken branches there are signs of life.
I wonder how much longer before these buds start to open.
Meanwhile the lichen looks green and lovely what ever time of year.
I am linking in with Loose and Leafy this month and I'll be back in April with more photos. I hope you are enjoying nature and seasonal changes wherever you are. Thanks for popping by.
