Many years ago I used to visit an elderly lady. She had a dog called Cindy.
When she became ill, I used to walk her dog. To thank me she would make me a cup of tea and produce some home made cake.
Then we would take a very slow stroll around her cottage garden.
It was a pretty garden, and at this time of year would be full of Columbine.
Whenever I see this favourite cottage garden plant, I always think of her.
She was a sweet old lady and left me with some wonderful memories :)
