In 1811 Wordsworth wrote a poignant poem about his three-year-old daughter, Catherine, with a field filled with meadow flowers as his inspiration - Unthought of, unexpected, as the stir of the soft breeze ruffling the meadow-flowers.”
Today the area of Mountain Meadow sees the fells around Haweswater, to the east of Wordsworth's home in Grasmere, and has an abundance of alpine flowers returning to them. As the Lake District’s highest lake, the area is unique and has rare plants such as mossy saxifrage, green spleenwort, juniper, bearberry, and oak. All of these are found in this meadow inspired vase by Rachel Bishop, together with soft, purple colored meadow cranesbill. Rachel has created a poignant bouquet of plants on this classic floral Moorcroft vase as a tribute to Wordsworth and his young daughter Catherine.
