One can't help but think of Wordsworth.

Yes, I was hoping to find some Lake District daffodil photos. Here is a very interesting wikipedia page on Dove Cottage in Grasmere, where Wordsworth lived during the time he wrote the daffodils poem. Wordsworth first discovered Dove Cottage on a walking tour with Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Dove Cottage is now owned by the Wordsworth Trust and is open for public visits.
