Blossom

April Riversearch

My stretch of the river Mole has again changed in the space of a month. I did my monthly Riversearch check last weekend. The water level is now back to normal, with the stepping stones easily crossable. There are still a few fallen trees lying across the river, and in a couple of places trees have pulled away large chunks from the bank when they fell.

Birds were singing loudly,  and the wood was carpeted with blossom petals.  The air was thick with the smell of wild garlic, although the garlic flowers are not quite in bloom.
I love how the seasons transform familiar places, so each time you visit there is something new.
