Christine was born and brought up on a smallholding in the little Gloucestershire village of Ryton, in a district well known for its wild daffodils and the Dymock Poets.

In this collection of short stories she recalls the memories of her idyllic childhood years spent at Moors Cottage and writes fondly of her family and village life, of times spent helping with the farm animals, and of her love for the countryside and the wild spring daffodils.

The title of her book has been inspired by the name of the lane which led down from her home.


This is a nostalgic trip down memory lane which will give the reader a glimpse of how country life used to be during the 1940s and ’50s.
