At the moment it is cold outside, and while our nature seems to be at more risk than ever (Thanks Trump, however kudos to the National Park Service). So I thought it is as good a time as ever to share some of the ways I get out in nature every day of the year, as well as specifically some ideas for winter.

Spring is here! Don't you just love seeing everything starting to 'wake up'? From the blossom in the trees, to breathing in warmer air - I feel like I am waking up too.

Spring in Britain can be an icy affair but I am always cheered by the bright crimson stems of young rhubarb even its red contrasts the white of snow, as it did recently. Beyond the garden you'll find rhubarb in country lanes and if you are fortunate, you may spy sweet cicely Myrrhis odorata too.

Foragers can have a lean time of it over the cold winter months but as the days lengthen, and we hear the distinctive song of the skylark as it hoovers in flight, the forager can fill his or her basket with buds and wild spring greens.

Even the most hardened naturalists will have deprived themselves of nature in all this driech, but March is on its way.

Don't try to push it, don't force the flow of your creation, wait for the movement and for it to flow again. If the energy is scattered, don't go into confused relationships, wait for the right moment to engage with it in when the energy feels easier.
