Photo Challenge and Cookies

This month I am joining in with the lovely Kate at I live, I love, I craft, I am me  blog for a scavenger photo hunt. A little late due to photo uploading issues.
'A photograph inspired by a word, words inspired by the photographs.'
My words are in a different order to the given list, you will see why.
Please join us on our walk.....
The view from our destination.
Daffodils are everywhere around here at the moment. Here are a few in the woodland.
Favourite colour.
On this particular day it was blue.
Half way up and it had to be removed. The chill of the fresh morning air soon replaced by the warmth of the sun.
The stone seat at the summit.
My six year old boots. Still going strong given how many miles they must have walked.
Baking or cooking.
A well earned rest for little legs and some home made cookies. Sat perilously close to an enticing muddy puddle.
Favourite mug or cup and saucer.
Not quite a mug, but a flask of  delicious hot chocolate does just fine.
My own choice.
Because I hope she always has a love of the outdoors.
With a small person around they don't get lit as often as I would like, but always a pleasure when they are.
