New life, old memories...

By NDODS    
I captured this image last year at Chiddingstone Castle whilst out and about with my Support Worker. I remember it being a beautifully fresh Spring Day, the Daffodils were in full bloom, and the crisp new buds were starting to emerge heading towards the beautiful light.

Thank you all for your most wonderful caring comments and messages over the past week, I have fallen foul to the dreaded flu virus, so I feel that I have had three rounds with the great Muhammad Ali. Looking at and commenting on your photographs whilst tucked up in bed is no easy task. Kizmet wants to play with the duvet, and Julie well, she just wants to play...

I hope that you all have a great day ahead, for me I'm staying put for the time being.

Catch up with you all soon

Take care, Nathan Grin

Very thoughtfully composed using the twig to frame itself! The promise of Spring in those delicate buds is so refreshing.

A title which works perfectly with this very lovely image. The Flu doing the rounds at the moment is hard on the fittest, so take care. Sounds as though Julie and Kizmet are doing a fine job! Tongue Wink
