Spring Has Sprung…

A very big THANK YOU

to plant the spring bulbs.

As you can see

the crocuses are fabulous!

Dangerous Behaviour…

It’s been noted that in recent weeks
someone has created a bike racing track
through Ghost Wood.

moss cleared

Moss has been cleared on the ground,
and obstacles positioned for ‘jumps’.

bike tracks

There are also visible bike tracks
in the mud.

This is a highly dangerous activity
in an area enjoyed by
dog walkers and families.

track across path

Colchester Borough Council are aware
and will be making the area safe.

Notices will be put up
and leaflets distributed locally.

deliberate obstacle

You are urged to phone the police
if you see any bikes on the slopes
or in the woods.

We have to put a stop to this
before someone gets hurt!

Beautiful Bulbs…

DSCN0002

It seems that the crocus bulbs,

which we planted recently,

are now beginning to flower.

DSCN0004

What a lovely sight.

DSCN0005

It’s good to know

that they’ll flower

year after year.

DSCN0007

We hope that you all

enjoy them

as much as we do.

We can’t wait for the daffodils to all come out!

Snowdrops…

We appear to have a few

pretty little snowdrops

dotted around the slopes.

In Ghost Woods

the fabulous Silver Birches

look rather splendid

against the blue sky.

The trees are full

of chirping birds.
