A young artist from Milnthorpe has found a new way to pay tribute to William Wordsworth.

Rebecca Bennett has painted the words of Daffodils (I wandered lonely as a cloud) and other poems onto silk scarves.

The scarves are on display in a show of Rebecca’s work at the Old School Room tea shop at Rydal Hall.

They form part of an exhibition of her exquisitely delicate paintings on silk, including wild life, landscapes, flowers and birds.

Rebecca, who works part time in an art gallery, has a degree in contemporary applied art.

The pictures, scarves and greetings cards at Rydal are also for sale.

The exhibition runs until the end of August. The Old School Room tea shop is open daily from 10am to 5pm.
