Springwatch #littleadventures

The Winter has seemed to last forever. Weeks & weeks of wind, rain and flooding. I always find myself longing for the Spring once Christmas is over, and recently we've been noticing more & more signs of its imminent arrival.


On our walks to swimming and to & from preschool, E has been gleefully pointing out all of the daffodils & snowdrops starting to grow in little patches everywhere, and the tiny shoots & leaves which are slowly peeking their way out on the hedges in the gardens we pass.

The evenings are lighter - which means no more trudging home in the dark after swimming lessons - and the birdsong has returned. The kids are usually famished after their swim lessons so they were keen to try out the new apple & strawberry flavours of Barny bear sponge snacks when I offered them, they were very handy for our early evening walks home.

L's favourite was apple while H preferred the strawberry, he said: "It's really soft and yummy, the strawberry is my favourite because it's so tasty!" so I think we can safely say that they have approval from the boys.
Barny bear snacks are also available in milk and chocolate flavours, and contain no artificial flavours or preservatives.

Have you noticed the signs of Spring peeking its way in? What #littleadventures have you been on this Winter?

This post is an entry for BritMums Winter Little Adventures Challenge sponsored by Barny, individually wrapped bear-shaped sponges with a hidden filling. Find out more about Barny here.

  2. Like you, I spend the whole of January wishing for spring. I quite like February because you really notice it getting lighter and see the first spring flowers - and it's short!

  4. Roll on Spring and all it's glory and hopefully a lot more sunshine. We have plenty of snow drops, crocus, daffodils and primrose making an appearance in the hedgerows here in Cornwall. Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.
