The garden is still covered in snow but a walk in the woods offered up the first signs of spring.
My first snowdrops of the year,
Oak Moss Lichen often used as a perfume fixative (forefront) and Foliose Lichen (background).
At fist I thought this was a pirate ship in the middle of the wood - but it turned out to be
Noah's Ark with lots of animals walking up the gangplank and looking out from the openings.
Nearby a rickety rocking chair, bench and table
inviting you to sit and spend a few moments in the woods...
and a cheeky robin hopping in and out of the foliage.
