From the Victoria & Albert Museum, Beatrix Potter country: a legacy in Lakeland and beyond. ‘My brother and I were born in London because my father was a lawyer there. But our descent, our interests and our joy was in the North Country.’
We've always enjoyed Beatirx Potter's childrens' books in our house. I just read a wonderful Q&A about a new book on her garden life in the NY times. Since then I've looked up as much as I could about Beatrix and discovered her complete love of the outdoors and nature conservation. .
