I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud ....

Leaving the wood we came across a field of daffodils
 I have been a very lucky lady over the weekend.  On Saturday a friend from 'Running Stitchers' dropped in to deliver some pelmet vilene and it just so happened she was on her way to have a walk on the Malven Hills and she asked me if I would like to join her.  We both had a splendid ramble taking advantage of the lovely sunny, warm weather.

On Sunday my next door neighbour popped round to say that the Dymock daffodils were excellent at the moment so I persuaded DH that he would rather go out for the afternoon for a walk among the daffodils than stay at home in front of the TV watching the Grand Prix!!  What a delight the daffodils were.  Small and perfectly formed.

We were mystified by the map we were following which seemed to bear no resemblance to our route.  We eventually fathomed out where we were and managed to get ourselves back en route towards Kempley through Dymock Woods, past the lovely tree above which was absolutely enormous.
View towards Ledbury and the Malvern Hills
We needed the cup of tea and homemade cake that was available in the village hall in Kempley when we arrived back at the car.  The view from there was terrific with Ledbury quite clear to see at the base of the hills and the peaks of the Malverns poking up in the distance behind.  The lovely red Herefordshire soil always brings pleasure to my heart too and there were large spring lambs to be seen everywhere on our walk and evidence of recent deer tracks in several places.
The pink line is our probable route
