A Memory Walk

I went on a memory walk with my Mam today, we went to Hawthorne Dene, I was so disappointed as we couldn't get down t the Dene itself as they had the gate chained up, the problem was Mams wheelchair, if we had both been on foot it would have been fine.
The walk itself is one that both Mam and Dad used to take both my girls on. we knew that the snowdrops would have been in full bloom and in the Dene it would have looked like a white blanket as far as the eye could see.
So instead we had to keep to the road, we still enjoyed the walk, the sun was shining and it was lovely to be out, just the two of us.
We met a couple walking their Black Labrador and it nearly ended up on Mams lap, it was so friendly, I also now need to wash my coat as it just wanted to play, it also made me realise that I really miss having a dog.

This shot actually inspired me to make a card from my new Damask Papers, I'll try to post that a little later.

The snowdrops look stunning Jak and how nice to go on a memory walk with your mum. These gorgeous little flowers make me feel a bit homesick but we have a trip back home planned for next month and I will also take in the Harrogate show whilst there. -x-

The snowdrops are so pretty, first breath of spring. Sorry you couldn't take your mum through the dene but you would have missed the pup............. so not all bad then.
