One of my favourite spots in the English Lakes District
is Grasmere in Cumbria.
The photos here were taken around Dove Cottage,
home for several years to William Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy.
They both wrote about life in and around
this quintessential English village.
I highly recommend a visit..if only to step back in time.
I wandered lonely as a Cloud
That floats on high o'er Vales and Hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd
A host of dancing Daffodils;
Along the Lake, beneath the trees,
Ten thousand dancing in the breeze
When we were in the woods beyond
Gowbarrow Park we saw a few daffodils
close to the water-side...as we went along
there were more and yet more.
I never saw daffodils so beautiful
.they looked so gay, ever glancing,
ever changing. The wind blew
directly over the lake to them.
