Endless spring meadow (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

lea

'meadow' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'endless spring' is the wordplay.
'endless' means to remove the last letter.
'spring' becomes 'leap' (both can mean to jump).
'leap' with its final letter taken away is 'LEA'.

(Other definitions for lea that I've seen before include "area of grassland", "authority for teachers", "River flowing through London", "''The lowing herd winds slowly o'er the ... '' (Gray)", "Open country".)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
