Photographer's Note

On a recent visit to Rydal Mount, the beautiful house in the village of Rydal in Cumbria where the Lakeland poet, William Wordsworth, lived most of his life, we took a walk around the lovely gardens of the house.

William Wordsworth designed the layout of the gardens at Rydal, and he often said that those grounds were his office as opposed to the spacious office/writing room in his house.

I was rather taken by this delightful garden shed and I could imagine Wordsworth himself perhaps pottering around here tending the garden and at the same time being inspired to write some of his wonderful poetry.
