    The Dove Cottage with the Wordsworth Museum is really an interesting place to visit in the Lake District of Scotland. Much of the Wordsworth’s life at Dove Cottage was centred around this beautiful garden and orchard. Your pictures are very wonderful and thank you for sharing with us !!!
    My best greetings for a happy weekend !!!
