Springtime and autumn are the times when woodland is at its best. In spring the freshness of the colour of the leaves lifts the spirits after the drabness of winter. also the ground cover busts into life – wood sorrel, dog mercury, stitchwort, primroses, wild garlic and bluebell. Fresh leaves, flowering ground cover and low sunlight and the scene become magical. The picture below is an example of how great woodland can look in spring.
