Spring signs

This might be my favourite time of year - I love spotting signs of spring, looking intently at each tree species in particular to see if the buds are bursting into leaf or for signs of blossom. 

Yesterday I had a particularly lovely walk in the Welsh hills and kept pausing to stop and see what was showing off it's new growth.

This is always the one I look for the most eagerly - the Larch. It's finally turning green with it's new needles and the flowers are in their earliest stages. Watch this space for flower updates as I spot them!
