I was only going to photograph the furry buds of this bush (osier?), but then the ants stole the show. They walked towards each other, stopped and high-fived (that’s what it looked like!) and then went on their way.

Lichen

This type of lichen is everywhere. It mostly hangs off half dead tree branches, and it looks like hair. We call it beard lichen.

These little darlings are practically the only spring flower we have. The rest come when it’s already summer. But since these are the first sign of spring, they spark a tiny explosion of sunshine in your heart when you see them.
