Chickweed, as it's name suggests, was one of the herbs used to add variety to hens' food at the end of winter - and the chickens int he wood were making the most of the green shoots. Then, I saw little sapphires, too! Tiny speedwell flowers rioting in and out of the early grasses. And all this while there was still heavy frost on the ground.
The magic of nature is at work in this shortest, sometimes most dismal, month of the year!
