The house was destroyed in the Blitz. Bousfield Primary School now stands where the house once was. A blue plaque on the school building testifies to the former site of The Potter home.
It was Annie who later suggested that these letters might make good children's books. Her parents were artistic, interested in nature, and enjoyed the countryside. As children, Beatrix and Bertram had numerous small animals as pets which they observed closely and drew endlessly.
In their school room, Beatrix and Bertram kept a variety of small pets, mice, rabbits, a hedgehog and some bats, along with collections of butterflies and other insects which they drew and studied. There she sketched and explored an area that nourished her imagination and her observation.

As was common in the Victorian erawomen of her class were privately educated and rarely went to university. Potter was eclectic in her tastes: In all these areas she drew and painted her specimens with increasing skill.
By the s her scientific interests centred on mycology. First drawn to fungi because of their colours and evanescence in nature and her delight in painting them, her interest deepened after meeting Charles McIntosh, a revered naturalist and amateur mycologist, during a summer holiday in Dunkeld in Perthshire in He helped improve the accuracy of her illustrations, taught her taxonomyand supplied her with live specimens to paint during the winter.
Curious as to how fungi reproduced, Potter began microscopic drawings of fungus spores the agarics and in developed a theory of their germination.
It was introduced by Massee because, as a female, Potter could not attend proceedings or read her paper. She subsequently withdrew it, realising that some of her samples were contaminated, but continued her microscopic studies for several more years. Her paper has only recently been rediscovered, along with the rich, artistic illustrations and drawings that accompanied it.
Her work is only now being properly evaluated. Inthe mycologist W. She was a student of the classic fairy tales of Western Europe. Although Potter was aware of art and artistic trends, her drawing and her prose style were uniquely her own.
Mice and rabbits were the most frequent subject of her fantasy paintings. Inthe firm of Hildesheimer and Faulkner bought several of her drawings of her rabbit Benjamin Bunny to illustrate verses by Frederic Weatherly titled A Happy Pair.
Inthe same printer bought several more drawings for Weatherly's Our Dear Relations, another book of rhymes, and the following year Potter sold a series of frog illustrations and verses for Changing Pictures, a popular annual offered by the art publisher Ernest Nister.
Potter was pleased by this success and determined to publish her own illustrated stories. Many of these letters were written to the children of her former governess Annie Carter Moore, particularly to Moore's eldest son Noel who was often ill.
She had run out of things to say to Noel and so she told him a story about "four little rabbits whose names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter". It became one of the most famous children's letters ever written and the basis of Potter's future career as a writer-artist-storyteller.
