Spring has Sprung at Appletree Cottage
Spring is in the air at Appletree Cottage, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
Daffodils are starting to raise their heads above ground, snowdrops are in abundance and the world has started to come to life again. This hedgehog has come out of hibernation and is looking for something to eat. It is unusual to see hedgehogs during the day - often it can be a sign of sickness - but this fellow appears to be in excellent health
This male pheasant was seen having a good look at Appletree Self Catering Cottage through the window. As well as this pheasant a medium sized roe deer has been spotted at the foot of the slope in front of the cottage. It appears to be munching its way through the stack of pruning from our apple trees. Better that than chewing the trees themselves.
Snowdrops are now out in force. The daffodils are trying to catch them up and other bulbs are beginning to poke their heads above the soil. Watch this space for further updates...
