Spring is in the air not a whiteboard in sight
Yesterday I took the children on a Spring walk. We are fortunate to have an orchard as part of our school grounds, so we started there and continued around the playground taking note of any signs of Spring. We found daffodils and buds, heard birds singing and the burn gurgling. Above the school is a private house which at one time had an extensive garden and contains some fabulous rhododendrons. We continued our trek taking photos and will revisit at intervals to see more changes. Although our playground is a concrete jungle we are surrounded by woodland, forest and field so within moments we can explore the natural world.
In case you are feeling a touch envious,I always have to remember to do it now though because once the summer approaches, the midges get their hobnail boots on and make outdoor pursuits an impossibility! Every silver lining has its cloud!!
