Spring Equinox at Mires Beck
Spring Equinox is the first day of Spring, where the days are brighter, warmer and longer. It's warm enough to go outside and enjoy the fresh air and amazing views of the countryside. New life (e.g. birds, plants and lambs) come out, and we can watch the sheep grazing in the fields.
Spring in this COVID-19 year represents the return of some of our service users to work outside in the fresh air and feel the benefits of working with nature.
At Mires Beck Nursery, we are hoping to open access to our woodland area this season with new events and we are building our bird feeding station for enthusiasts to enjoy watching our woodland wildlife (e.g. birds, squirrels).
This is officially the first day of Spring, and to celebrate this day and the many blessings of our location, our staff will wear yellow to symbolise the new sunlight upon the land and pollen that the bees and other pollinators will be collecting to make delicious honey! We look forward to this time every year as the beginning of our plant season and welcome everyone to walk around our beds full of plants beginning to bloom and show their multi-tude of colours and shapes.
