As I've been walking round my local area I've noticed a few signs of early spring appearing so yesterday I took the camera with me and got a few shots of some crocuses and snowdrops - definitely a sign that spring isn't too far away now. A walk though the local golf course showed me that the tips of the gorse bushes are beginning to turn yellow - another few weeks and they will all be in full bloom, creating vivid splashes of colour along the fairways and footpaths.
The nicer days have also encouraged me to think about this year's camping trips and I've now booked my first one - Easter at Felin Uchaf in North Wales, the very quiet and peaceful site I went to at Easter last year. By the time Good Friday comes along next month it will be exactly six months since my last camp; I had every intention of camping at least once during the winter months but the continuous heavy rain put paid to that idea so I'm really looking forward to this Easter weekend. The weather last Easter was glorious so I'm keeping my fingers crossed (and the dogs are crossing their paws) for some more of the same this time. I've thought of a couple of different places to explore over that weekend and I'm hoping I can get lots of good photos, so watch this space.
