UK Canal boat holidays


Gardeners in the South West of England have declared that Spring has officially arrived.

The staff at Trebah Gardens work out the arrival of Spring by counting the number of blooms on three of the their magnolia trees.

The gardeners say when there are 50 blooms on the three magnolia Campbellii trees, then Spring has arrived.

Why not take a Canal Boat Holiday on one of the UK canals and watch nature at it's best this Springtime.

Spring is certainly just around the corner with the the woodlands and hedgerows and are bursting with new life.

The beautiful scent of the blackthorn will soon grace our hedgerows and the hawthorn will soon be bursting into bud.

As spring begins to arrive everything will burst into bloom at the same time giving a wonderful display of colour and scent.

Normally it is the snowdrops that brave the weather first to give a wonderful show of pure white and green.

The bluebells then carpet the floor of our woods and forests with a swathe of blue.

The rooks are one of the first birds to nest and they will soon be building their colony and bringing up their young.

The chaffinches, nuthatches and grey herons are some of the birds that will be looking for mates and will be claiming their nesting sites.

There will soon be evidence of frogspawn in our ponds and waterways as the frogs return during February and March to lay their eggs.

Dipping for tadpoles, be careful only to disturb a few, is one of the joys for children on a Canal Boat Holiday.
