Durlston Bay

Durlston Country Park, situated 1 mile from Swanage in Dorset, is a fabulous 280 acre countryside paradise, consisting of sea-cliffs, coastal limestone downland, haymeadows, hedgerows and woodland. With stunning views, walking trails, the historic Great Globe, superb geology and fascinating wildlife there is always something different to see.

Snowdrops raining lawn.

The Abbot Street Copse in Pamphill is a wonderful place to visit.
Pamphill is off the B3082 north of Wimborne. Turn left into Abbott Street (passing Pamphill Dairy on your right) take another left further up the hill into a tree lined avenue (to your right is St Stephen Church), park in the siding/car park here. Return to Abbott Street and walk up the hill, take the track to your left. Along teh track you will come to a style on your right which takes you a short distance across a field. This leads directly to the copse.
A beautiful Church, magnificent avenues of trees and a carpet of snowdrops.
Winter solstice turns the page breathing robin song.
And in late April when the blue bells are out.

Springtime in my garden

Oh, sure, the season officially arrived on the equinox, March 20! / Да, конечно, в отличие от календарной, астрономическая весна наступает позже - во время весеннего равноденствия -20 марта!
Метеорологическая и календарная весна начинается 1 марта, астрономическая – 21 марта.
А вот биологическая весна для некоторых уже началась!
