Spring into the forest

26 February 2024

Embark on a journey from the frosty whispers of winter to the warm embrace of spring at Lime Wood. The New Forest beckons, and as the days grow longer, we eagerly anticipate the magic that unfolds with the changing season. 

Here are our top 5 things we are looking forward to seeing as spring returns to the New Forest...

1. Spring Awakening: As the gentle warmth of spring arrives, the New Forest awakens from its winter slumber. Bask in the sunshine, soak up the serotonin boost, and witness the forest come alive.

2. New Life: Spring introduces us to the enchanting spectacle of new life. Our personal favourites are the newborn foals, taking tentative first steps or frolicking with joy as they navigate their way through the forest. If you're lucky, catch glimpses of calves, baby donkeys, and fawns adding to the irresistible charm.

3. Bluebells: Undoubtedly the star attraction, bluebells grace the woodlands, fields, and hedgerows with their breathtaking display of colour. Spot them in abundance at Clayhill Heath near Lyndhurst and Broomy inclosure in late April and early May.

4. Colours: Immerse yourself in the dazzling array of colours that paint the New Forest in spring. From the vibrant bluebells and burst of yellow from the celandines, buttercups, and cowslips, to the bright leaves on the trees which infuse the forest with a sense of vitality and vibrancy. 

5. New Forest Scents: Let your senses guide you through the forest as you inhale the calming scents of the woodland and the fresh fragrance of bluebells. Experience nature's aromatic symphony, a perfect complement to the visual delights of spring.
