The daffs are looking a bit sparse this year....

Ron, this is your third first class photo in this series. Thanks - I don't know how you do it with the woodland scenes because I know where they are just from the thumbnail!

They look like early arrivals to party. A little nervous. Not quite sure what to do. Nodding and whistling through pursed lips. Waiting for the others.

Nooky Wood? Interesting name! How lovely to see signs of Spring.

If it’s like a lot of parties Poet, the rest will be in the kitchen with the drinks!

Lovely Spring photograph Ron, thank you. My favourite time of year.

Nothing cheers more after winter’s chills
Than the springtime showing of the Daffodils.

I just love trees,we were in Yorkshire a few years ago with our eldest Son and his partner...as we were walking through all the lovely trees my hubby and myself decided to hug one of them..my Sons reaction was "Are you sure I'm not adopted".

They will probably die off waiting for the others to arrive at the Dance of the Daffs. Must be something to do with the weather. Now if they were Wallflowers... it would be a different matter.....;<))

They'll be all snapped off now with this wind

What's the difference between Mick and a battery....................................A battery has a positive side.:) .

Lovely photo again. There is a new development of houses nearby which I only saw a few weeks ago named Holly Nook Close.

Nice pic, Ron. I can see myself sitting in the middle of that scene and simply relaxing, smoking my pipe..maybe with a good hot coffee and enjoying the peace of this lovely scene.

Well done.

Irene, the name of the wood is very provocative, but what will be will be. Peebee, thinking about your battery, it will get run down and fade away whilst Mick goes on and on.

Ken R, the name just made me smile. I realise it came from an earlier age with a different meaning. I remember names like "Common Nook" and "Factory Fold" from my childhood and I LOVE those old-fashioned, homely names.
