Th’ an t-earrach a’ tighinn!

Down in the earth in the dark winter bed

Someone is calling, the crocus said.

In colours bright they quickly dressed,

In lavender, purple and gold of the best.

Then out in the grass they dance in a ring

And call to the children, “Come out! It is spring.”

H.Henley, taken from the book ‘Spring’ Poems, Songs and Stories by Wynstones Press.


We are open again for business 2018 and have already seen some adventurous walkers pass the box. We have added some new food; pizza and veggie wraps…we hope you enjoy!

The snowdrop

I found a tiny snowdrop, blooming in the cold,

I’ll share with you the secret the little flower told:

“Though winter still is here, it hasn’t long to stay.

I came ahead to tell you that spring is on its way.”

Christina T. Owen, from ‘A Journey Through Time in Verse and Rhyme’ Poems collected by Heather Thomas.


Spring is on its way and we will be opening the wee box again on Friday 17th March.
