Is spring here at last?

I am hanging for Summer and while we have had a few weeks of sunny, clear days it is not really warm yet (at least not warm enough for a permanently cold Australian). Officially spring arrived in the UK several weeks ago but it only feels as though yesterday the trees and forests caught up. Suddenly it seems, that literally overnight the leaves have exploded in a riot of shades of fresh pale greens. Our local forest is a gorgeous, quiet, serene place and this morning it was truly stunning. Modj decided running fast with a stick down a bank was not dangerous, just exhilarating.
