Signs of spring?

It was the morning of Easter Monday that I decided I had recovered enough strength to walk the dog across 39 Acres and up round the Roman Camp.  To my astonishment, a whole host of signs had appeared.  Every sign indicating a public footpath had been replaced.  Each lichen-covered, weather-beaten signpost like this
