Vernal Equinox: Day 6

Another day of celebrating the start of spring. It's the big day tomorrow, but we had a very enjoyable day today continuing my plan to make the week as daffodil-tastic as possible.


And where better to see daffodils (or rather 'Daffodils') than at the Wordsworth Museum and Dove Cottage! The museum has a special exhibition on to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Dorothy Wordsworth's birth, as well as the opportunity to see 'I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud' in Wordsworth's own hand, as the manuscript is currently on loan from the British Library. We had a lovely day at the museum and Dove Cottage in Grasmere today. It was perfect weather for a nice stroll around the gardens and woods at Dove Cottage too.


We ended our little trip to the Lakes with a little walk around Thirlmere. We didn't spot any red squirrels, but the scenery was spectacular.

Dorothy Wordsworth Book and Bookmark

A lovely gift from Rob from the Wordsworth Museum... a book about Jane Austen and Dorothy Wordsworth by Marian Veevers, and a woven bookmark covered in daffodils!
