Welcome to our February Pioneer - we hope you enjoy our 'romantic' floral foray. Here is a link to the February issue of the Wild About Plants Pioneer e-Bulletin.
We have had fun this issue finding out about Yorkshire in response to your wishes to explore more of our wonderful regions. Talking of 'forays', our  next issue will feature sizzling spring salads foraged from hedgerows. We will also be letting you know just how much of a serious business foraging is for householders up and down the country. If you have yet to share your foraging forays with us then please fill in a parish record form, available to download from our website: www.wildaboutplants.org.uk/parish
It is getting warmer and time to come out from hibernation and see signs of spring peeking out from the ground. Our Wild About Plants website features places you have identified as being good for spotting wild plants. So why not take a look and start planning some spring and summer visits. We would welcome all suggestions. You can also visit the Plantife website to see which wild flowers can be seen at our 23 nature reserves: www.plantlife.org.uk/nature_reserves
It will soon be time to go out and see snowdrops and later bluebells in our woodlands - if you haven't planned your walk or are still trying to find somewhere to go then there are more than 14,000 woods across the UK where people are welcome to visit. You can find your local woods, download free activities and share your wild plant and woodland photos at www.visitwoods.org.uk
Wishing you warmer walks and plenty of plant sightings!
See you in May!
The Wild About Plants team.
