The poet William Wordsworth came across the daffodils when he was walking with his sister Dorothy around Glencoyne Bay, Ullswater, in the Lake District on 15 April, 1802. And both were charmed by the beauty of the flowers along the bay. Dorothy wrote in his journal entry for the day: “I never saw daffodils so beautiful…” And our poet went on to compose “I wandered lonely as a cloud” in 1804 drawing inspiration from Dorothy’s journal entry.
