It seemed fitting for the first day of Spring to show you just how much Spring-ish-ness there was in the woods yesterday…

We saw cushions and pillows of sweet, shy, basking primroses.

That were just too pretty to skip past

The last of the catkins - which were stunning as they shimmered in the late spring sunshine

There was tree bark that made my fingers itch to stroke it (satin smooth swirls with pieces of rough peeling crusty bark)

And some odd whirly fluffy stuff which was just gorgeous (if you know what it is, please tell). But I'll admit I had to get C to photograph this one as my efforts were frustratingly pitiful.
