Desperate for better weather to come and noticing the nights lighter and the days sometimes sunny three intrepid adventures when on a hunt for Spring! Armed with cameras (and a scooter!) they set off to collect the evidence that Spring is starting.
The journey took them to the woods at the top of the hill where they listened for the sounds of Spring, some birds were heard singing a song or two but as yet there are no nests to be found and the trees remain 'naked' as Bug Boy (6yrs) described them.
Wait a minuet, what have these two adventurers Book Worm (8yrs) and Little Boy Blue discovered? The trees have grown and new bark appears also buds upon the branches are a promised sign that the trees and bushes will soon be clothed in fresh green leaves.
Our first true piece of evidence that Winter is nearing its end are these beautiful Snowdrops that pop up all around.
Struggling to break through even in stony ground are the odd Crocus or two, they start to paint a colourful picture that we can't wait to see.
Even one lone Daffodil was captured by camera shining in the sun and many more bulbs seemed to shy or cold and wait to explode like bright yellow suns!
Normally our adventurers know to leave the wild flowers alone but in all the excitement Little Boy Blue who is still not yet a 'fully qualified' adventurer pulled one out to have a closer look!
So it seems that the intrepid adventurers weren't chasing shadow after all but they did find some anyway! lol
