A weekend with friends and daffodils in Rydal

A thousand daffodils at Barks Ridge

I spent last weekend with friends in Rydal. It was the annual daffodil festival, held every 2nd weekend in September. The weather was magnificent, the company convivial and the daffodils splendid.

My friends and I stayed at Rydal Mount which is a small conference centre owned by my friend, Anne.

Several gardens in the village were open and awash with daffodils and the tulips were just beginning to poke their heads up. There were also gardens open in properties we visited around Rydal.

Chappel House was magnificent.

There was a chill in the air, but the sun shone brightly all weekend and many, many visitors came to the small village which has a population of 81.

Put it on your 'places to visit' list - recommend September. Rydal is between Lithgow and Bathurst on the road that passes Lake Lyell.

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this website. It's simple,
yet effective. A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and appearance. I must say you've done a superb job with this.
In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome.

Outstanding Blog!

Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to
generate a good article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and never seem to get anything done.
