And now to my third all time favourite after Mrs Christie and Mrs Munro, Beatrix Potter, the lady who made my smile while reading her children stories. I had the pleasure of visiting the museum in Windermere as well as the area where she lived. Magical!
Beatrix Potter was a writer, illustrator and conservationist. She is best remembered for her best-selling childrens books, such as, The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Stories that combined her love for both animals and the English countryside. In her later life, she bought a substantial amount of land in the Lake District and on her death donated it to the National Trust, helping to preserve a significant part of the Lake District national park.
By the way did you see the movie? So lovely and delicate, like her stories.
