Search for spring

It has been a long time since anybody has been out in the forest. Niks and Naks wanted to see if they can find any signs of spring.

Niks: Here are green lingonberries...

Naks: That's cheating, lingonberries are evergreen!

Naks: The spruce is all green...

Niks: That's cheating, spruces are evergreen!

Naks: Here's a coltsfoot!

Niks: That's definitely not cheating.

Naks: Isn't it pretty?

Niks: I wonder if it tastes good...

Naks: Hepatica flowers and leaves!

Niks: The leaves are cheating, they are leftovers from last year, but the flowers are new.

Naks: More hepaticas! Aren't they pretty?

Niks: I wonder if they taste good...

Niks: Look, there is still snow on the ski track!

Naks: We can go skiing!

Niks: Barefoot skiing! Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
