On this day in 1802, Ullswater in the Lake District inspired William Wordsworth to write his most famous poem, I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud (or as many know it, Daffodils.) Which of our places inspire you to be creative, whether it be photography, writing, drawing or otherwise? Let us know in the comments below.

Thanks to NT Images and Paul Harris for this splendid view across Ullswater.

+National Trust So - be honest - do YOU like Wordsworth? (That's not a collective NT view, of course).

If you want a taste of childhood we recommend this recipe for Wet Nelly, or as many of you will know it, Bread Pudding http://bit.ly/1nioEXa

Which recipes transport you back to being a youngster?

still haven't though. I'd like to know why this social media team/company thought it was best practice not to put it in the post. I'd like to meet them actually, would be the first time I've  hosted B2B social media talks. ;)

A sea of lilac flowers, a restored 1930s kitchen, a Cornish beach in need of conservation…Just some of the wonderful places you might find yourself in if you volunteer with us!

Why not give it a go this spring? Lots of opportunities here: http://bit.ly/1h9uhpp

Spring is a great time to explore the fells, whether you like walking, cycling or even climbing. 

We can’t guarantee the weather will be perfect, but you can be sure the views will be second to none. http://bit.ly/1qbIhTr

+Lisa mw It's certainly a very special place. Do you favour the mountainous areas like Snowdonia and Brecon, or the beaches in Pembrokeshire and on The Gower?
