Frogspawn and a first primrose

Frogspawn in the ponds at Wheatland Farm, January 2012There’s frogspawn in 2 of our ponds! I hope it doesn’t turn seriously cold now. I’ve already seen the first primrose flowering in the hedge banks of our local lanes. That’s months too early really – overall so far it has been a mild winter. But today there was a dusting of snow. In previous years the kids have been off school because of bad weather even in February, so there’s no knowing yet.
