Even more spring’s springing!

The Butter Burrs are out – like something from another planet flowering as they do before their leaves show:

They are rather fascinating inflorescences, and rather a Summery colour:


You can see just one Wood Anemone in the photo, but there are millions of them now carpeting the woodland floor.
The Cow Parsley looks good enough to eat (bet it doesn’t taste as good as it looks though!):

Although that could be Sweet Cicely.

I’ve been copying a technique used by David Nash in his column sculptures and written about in “Wildwood” by Roger Deakin (A very good read – highly recommended.)
I’ve taken a beech butt and made a series of chainsaw cuts into it and now I’m watching it split and move as it dries out, what fun!
