Beatrix Potter at Leeds Castle

Standard

Apparently I’ve had my little blog 3 years today. I would just like to thank everyone for following me, liking my posts & leaving me comments. I never thought I would have ‘blog friends’ three years ago. 

It was my day off, so we’ve been to Leeds Castle in Kent (UK), this year they are celebrating Beatrix Potter.

 ( lots of photos)

Her desk

Inside the potting shed

Jeremy Fisher in the court yard

The Taylor of Gloucester, do look for the mice near the sewing machine 

Mrs Tiggiwinkle

Squirrel Nutkin?

And finally Peter Rabbit.  

I just like these last two, finally looking back at her desk. 

I was an absolutely dismal day so no outside pictures, it was really unusual to be in these rooms on your own, it’s normally really busy, mind you as we were walking back a group of probably foreign students (on their way back to the ferry) passed us, so we were lucky.

  1. This looks delightful, I love Beatrix Potter, I bought a set for my kids when they were little. I went to Leeds Castle many years ago & loved it, it struck me as one of the few castles I could actually imagine someone living in ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. What a delight! Beatrix Potter was such a fascinating woman. Her drawings and paintings were correct to the tiny details because she spent so much time observing her natural world.

  3. I don’t know how I managed to miss this post, but I’ve found it now. Firstly, congratulations on your three year blogiversary, and secondly, what a lovely bunch of photos! I’ve been to Leeds Castle, and it’s a wonderful place, but this exhibition is really special.

  4. Congratulations of your 3rd year of blogging and hope you enjoy the 4th.
    Thanks for sharing Beatrix Potter’s display. It’s a joy to view everything.

    I have the set of books, another on making her characters and a third on knitting garments for children and adults. I have made most of the animals from the 2nd book (some repeated)and a number of items from the 3rd book, and enjoyed creating them.
