Spring has sprung in Grasmere

There are two woodpeckers attacking the trees in the back garden with great vigour. The other birds are skittering all over in a very flighty ( is that where the word came from?) manner, and the Daffodils are out at last.
Stay for 2 nights or more, midweek before the end of April at White Moss House and take a 10% discount on the usual rates.
Don't wait- come now and see the daffodils!( picture to follow- I'm off out with my camera now)

Another great walk from White Moss House Grasmere.

Walking in short sleeves in the sun! The air is still very cold- my drink stayed iced!
 From White Moss, go up to the coffin road, then left to the duck pond near Dove Cottage, taking the Alcock tarn path above the duck pond.
Lovely view of Helm Crag on this walk.
After about 1/4 mile, the main path goes right, but fork left, and eventually you come out at Ben Place Grasmere, by our Lady of the Wayside on the A591.
Didn't see a single person !
Crossed the main road, took the path into Grasmere, popped into Coop to buy an apple, back through Broadgate meadow, on the Grasmere Riverside walk, coming out near Dove Cottage, then back to White Moss on the old road ( the one Wordsworth used )
View of Grasmere from Lady Wood on the old road.

There can't be many other places in the world with such great walks from the door. Fantastic!

Daffodils very nearly out at White Moss, Grasmere

A couple of more days, and the little yellow beauties will be out- spring must be here!
If you want to take a look at Wordsworth's Daffodils , my latest web page over on Squidoo, you'll see lots of glorious photos.
BTW, just got in from a walk, on which we saw a group of youngsters swimming in Grasmere. They swam out to the ice which still covers lots of the lake,   about 20 yards from the shore!
They were on some sort of challenge, maybe Duke of Edinburgh. Anyway, good luck to them!!!!!

Sunshine and snowdrops at White Moss, Grasmere

Snowdrops in White Moss House, Grasmere garden

"Why worry?
There should be sunshine after rain,
These things have always been the same,
So why worry now? "                         
 (Dire Straits- sadly overlooked by philosophers I feel)

On Thursday 19 November 2009 the heavens opened on Cumbria and a 48 hour torrent flooded the area turning roads into rivers, gardens into lakes.

Now, less than 4 months later,  the snowdrops and sunshine bring a promise of spring, and hopefully, a great summer.

Business that were flood affected are reopening, visitors are flocking back to enjoy the amazing scenery that early spring offers- clear blue skies, with a dash of snow on the tops.
Come back to Cumbria! ( and White Moss House of course!)

White Moss Grasmere- loved by herons!

White Moss Tarn, just above White Moss House, is the haunt of this chap ( I think it's a he!). I see him often, and so get a bit blase about him.
Then, when a visitor sees him for the first time and gets all excited I have to think- should I do a Michael Winner, "Calm down dear , it's only a heron", or should I seem very excited too?
I take the excited route. Well, he's not bad looking, and he loves to pose for photos.
