“As I went about my housework, I somehow instantaneously had the impulse to call my mother but realising that it was completely out of the question,” The Independent quoted her as saying.

“I decided to Google Earth my mother’s home to see how it looked, considering, since she had passed away in 2015 and the property had been sold,” she said.

Using Google Earth Denise located the home on Chaytor Road in Staffordshire, England, by recognising a tall silver birch tree and zoomed in on to the street view. To her surprise she spotted her mother outside the home watering the plants as an old view of the road was being streamed by Google Earth.

“I got the biggest surprise ever! I just couldn’t believe it, she said.

“At the foot of the driveway was my mother. She was watering the garden, just as she always did. I was absolutely astounded; it made my day. You never know what photos are being taken but they really do last a lifetime,” Denise added.

“I think someone wanted me to see this,” she said.
