Here at White Moss, Grasmere, in the Lake District we're in the middle of a very, very dry spell. After the floods of November 2009, it is hard to imagine, but we are having a drought, and there is talk of a hosepipe ban soon!
The lavender , however, is just loving this dry, sunny weather- and so are the bees.
At White Moss House we have at least 6 different lavenders- heavenly!
At White Moss House guest house, Grasmere, we have an ancient rose, which we call the Wordsworth Rose. The house was bought by poet William Wordsworth for his son, Willie, and the poet often called in and sat in the porch where the rose gr0ws.
We are told it is very old, so we think it dates back to the time of William Wordsworth.
It flowers once a year, just a few very scented blooms, and its out now! If you would like to stay, enjoying the glorious June weather, we have rooms free from Sunday 20 June for up to 4 nights, and again from 26 June (only 1 room left on 28 June).
Please email me if you want to make a last minute booking- I can offer you a June discount if you can stay 2 or more nights.
( we are fully booked on 17, 18 and 19 June, and also on 24 and 25 June)
