Visible and audible life fills the spring of deciduous and herb-rich forests

The arrival of spring brings an end to the wintry silence of deciduous and herb-rich forests. The snows melt away into streams and the warmth of the sun kick-starts the new growing season. Everywhere you look, there are new shoots sprouting among the leaf litter, and spring bloomers cover the forest floor in flowers. Pollinators buzz above the sea of flowers and passionate birdsong fills the air. Tree buds bulge and sprout into leaves, quickly covering everything in green.
