The author Marta McDowell needed photographs of Hill Top garden through the seasons for her book and as she lives in the USA popping along to take some photos from time to time just wasn't an option! Instead she used local professional photographer Dayve Ward, well known to us here on Beatrix's patch, and he did the 'popping along' for her. He put together a lovely collection of photos of the garden and house; here are a couple of them...
Also featuring Beatrix Potter this month is the Armitt Museum in Ambleside which this week officially opened its new permanent Beatrix Potter 'Image and Reality' exhibition.
