Flowers are returning

Daffodil stems are sprouting in parks. Rosemary plants are sprouting purple blossoms and if you look closely, there are sure signs nature is on the move.

Soon, the skeletal tree trunks and branches will be lush with leaves, hedgerows and bushes will be thick with life again, and colour will be back in our lives. Bring It On!!!!!!!!

Wildlife is awakening

After a winter of hibernating, you might start to notice more foxes, birds, door mice, bees and other wild animals frequenting your garden or the street where you live. Open the window, listen to the birdsong, enjoy the buzz of insects – and brace yourself for more of where that came from as the months march on.

It’s lighter when we wake up

Hands up if you’ve noticed actual daylight beginning to peak through the sides of your curtains or blinds when your alarm goes off?

The days are getting longer and will continue to until 21 June, when we have the longest day. Clocks will also go forward at the end of March. If that’s not cause for celebration, we don’t know what is.

The temperature is rising

Have you felt the warmth of the sun on your face yet? After a particularly chilly spell – dubbed The Beast From The East part two – things are warming up. We’re not quite talking shorts and flip flops, but it’s a step in the right direction.

Caroline is preparing our school grounds

Planting beds and garden areas around the school are being prepared for seeds and bulbs so that we can enjoy our surroundings as much as possible. These will include food items such as runner beans, tomatoes and lettuce, which will be sold within the community.

Spring is definitely on the way………
