About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

Jealous! I was stuck indoors all day at work. Glad you managed to make the most of a change in the weather.


Gosh, you have been busy, and how promisingly gardenful it all looks. I can't wait to see how it looks as the summer rolls on :D


Oooh looks like it's going to be good. Keep us updated as it all springs into life!

It looks as if your garden is all coming together! I have so much to do but the weather here has been poor. At least my seedlings are sprouting in the greenhouse.


Those Pansies are awesome, love Pansies. My favourite are the Purple and White ones. Looks like you had a productive day!


Oooh you put me to shame. I must get out in the garden. 'As you sow so you reap'. :) x

I know this is going to sound like a silly question, but how do you make your coffee/tea. When I see your drink in your lovely cup it seems to be frothy and yummy. So, how do you make it?

More juice, more juice, spoil me bad. Too cute, but you are in for a long summer, sweetie. I'm doing much the same thing here. But, I haven't found a great discount greenhouse like that. I'm going to be keeping my eyes peeled here that's for sure.

PLANT ON, Kate the Garden Bell


*sigh* such a lovely post. talk to your plants AND to us!


Sounds like a lovely day. The juice is beautiful. Wish I could get it here in the states. I can just see Little B loving the juice. I've seen little ones get their first taste of soda, faces red up to their eyebrows, it almost takes their breath away, yet they scream for more when when it is taken away. You are a smart mum to promote milk and water and make juice a treat. Best to eat the whole fruit. You're children are young but when they are old enough I hope they realize what a treasure you are.


I'm WAY behind with seeds and things- been so wet and cold I've hardly been down to my greenhouse. Wake up feeling planty guilt every morning- hoping to get stuck in over the weekend though... before June arrives...aaargh!


I have just pulled up and dug in dwarf beans greenery as compost - they were most successful, even at the end of summer and so delicious in the stirfrys we often eat. Sunflowers are very successful here in Australia, in our extreme 35+ degree summer days; I love the tall-ness of them and their happy faces.
About to start a baby blankie, having finished all my other projects first - never happened before as I usually have several on the go at once - low boredom threshold!

Hi there Lucy, love reading your blog, you really bring a ray of happiness to a shed load of people, thank you thank you thank you" I noticed that if you hover over your pics it gives a number and it may be the total number of pics on your blog!!! If it is then its 6895 isn't that amazing!!!!


So glad you got some nice weather. Your little greenhouse is fantastic. I need to find one like that! We aren't clear of frost danger until June 1 here usually, so I start running out of window sills for the tomatoes and whatnot.


You really could surely send hubs out in the morning with a shopping list at times? ie: come home with a bag of compost in the car please? Why struggle with the pushchair? That's what the partnership is all about. :-)

Beautiful day here too, just gorgeous xx


Your green house looks so cheery with all it's little occupants! :) I hope they have a lovely time in there and grow like crazy. Yay for growing things yourself! :)


How excellent and just what I needed Lucy! I was feeling a tad sorry for myself this morning as it was only 10C when I got up. Reading through your garden rambles (as it was nice enough for you to be outside) reminded me that's what it's like here most days so now I've got my act together.


You've been busy! Your seedlings are doing really well! My basil ones aren't looking so great! I've been busy in the garden as well this week and it is so satisfying!


Thank you for the lovely smile you put on my face whilst reading your delightful post.


Love your little greenhouse! What a great idea!


Yes,lovely to get outside,lifts the spirits. Lets hope for lots more warm sunny days to come.


I adore your blog! I did individual greenhouses out of used plastic milk cartons, but I love your new greenhouse. There is something so rewarding about growing your own plants from seed.


Oh Lucy! I love your little greenhouse. I want one! I also love Morning Glories and Cosmos. These are two of my favorite and I just transplanted some into my garden too. :)


Oh Lucy. I just wish the good weather will go on.
I have been reading your blog for years now and and it's is the one of the best things in life, I have to say. Always, after reading your blog post, the world seems one piece of better place and I am so grateful of you and your posts;)


No cherry tomatoes to go with the basil? ;)
Oregano is also a useful aromatic plant with tomatoes.
Is that parsley or coriander near your chives (second picture)? I like coriander: first the leaves with cheese, then the beautiful flowers for the eyes, and finally the seeds that I grind in my UK grinder for the meat :)
What about radishes for your little helper? He would be so proud with his first vegetables.
I do not see pots of marigolds. You should sow some as they give so many "sunny" flowers until frost. Please send me an email with your address if you want some seeds.
