STINGS AND PRICKLES will become more of a hazard as thistles and nettles proliferate in the verges and through the grass.

QUEEN WASPS will be coming out of hibernation looking for suitable places to build large, papery nests.

DECIDUOUS TREES are an almost luminous ‘spring’ green this time of year with most of them in full leaf and at their very best for the next week or two. Soon they will turn a darker, less vibrant colour of ‘forest green’ making them harder to distinguish from their evergreen cousins.

FOX CUBS born in April are beginning to come out of their holes and earths, the colour of their fur changing from chocolate brown to the more familiar rage and their eyes changing from blue to yellow. They will be dependant on their parents for food for some time so you may see adult foxes carrying young rabbits in the countryside or raiding bins in towns and cities to feed their young.

The Phantom Lollipop Man!

Review to follow (busy week!) but, as you can see, I adored this hence its position as the March Book of the Month!  



Igniting Writing is a creative writing club hosted at Wokingham Library and completely free to attend. The club provides a fun, relaxed atmosphere where 11-18 year-olds can develop their storytelling and writing skills. Writing can be a bit of a solitary activity, so this provides a great opportunity for teens to come together and write as a group, share their imaginative story ideas with others and build friendships with other young aspiring writers. Sessions are held on Saturday mornings, 10:30am to 12noon, and focus on a different aspect of writing every week, from creating characters and settings to exploring genres like sci-fi, fantasy and beyond. Roughly once a month Igniting Writing also hosts 'guest speaker' sessions, where local authors, poets, journalists and other people experienced in the world of writing come and share their knowledge and advice – it's a chance to get the inside scoop from the pros!
