photo Friday - Peter Rabbit & Mr Mcgregor's garden

Friday, May 30, 2014

Last Monday I was standing in Mr Mcgregor's garden at The World of Beatrix Potter. Oh happy day. And such a fab way to re-live my childhood. I left with such a huge smile on my face!!

Look  - there's Peter Rabbit's jacket in the garden...

Peter Rabbit & Mr Mcgregor's garden

If you've got kids, or are just a big kid at heart yourself then I would thoroughly recommend visiting The World of Beatrix Potter on an outing. As well as being reminded of all her beautiful stories that I used to love growing up, I also learnt a lot about the lady herself - and what an inspirational woman she was. Well ahead of her time.

Wonder what mischief I'll get up to this weekend?

  1. I adore Beatrix Potter and look forward to sharing her stories with my children (once I have them). What a sweet little travel recommendation. :)

    1. In that case you should definitely pencil this into your diary at some stage. It's not a big museum but very delightful and you get to see all the story characters set up in scenes from the tales.

  2. I've been to the Lake District 3 times and each time have managed to unintentionally miss going. I'm determined to make it to the Beatrix Potter museum next time. Given my last name, as a kid, I always imagined Mr McGregor looking like my dad or my uncle and kind of rooted for both him and Peter as a result!

  6. English gardens. Oh, English gardens. Despite living in the utterly glorious world of Japanese gardens, I do miss the profusion and wildness and naturalness of English gardens so much!

    PS: Japan is OBSESSED with Beatrix Potter.
