Why not spend Mother’s Day with your mother & Mother Nature? This beautiful springtime walk loops past some stunning patches of daffodils, which will be wearing their ‘yellow sunbonnets’ and ‘greenest gowns’ come mid-March.
We will be meeting at the church but there is limited parking there. There are, however, plenty of options nearby – further details will be provided to signed up walkers before the walk date.
She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown,
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
And shock her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
“Winter is dead”.
