Wow! did you plant all of those flowers? They're really beautiful. You're pretty good in planting. I love it. Thanks for sharing.



Thank you so much for a bright wonderfully coloured blog. I stumbled across it this weekend because I'd started a ripple blanket and then found your tutorial (too late for this one, but there's always the next one! - I think I'm hooked!).
I've had to work this weekend and reading your blog to the beginning in stages over the weekend was a welcome relief from work. So thank you for brightening up a cold work filled winter's weekend.


So beautiful - the colors are so similar to all your fantastic crochet works! I've been happy working on the pots on my roof deck - more veggies than flowers! Happy arranging!

What a delight all the flowers are! The colors! So gorgeous! Your crocheting and patchwork colors certainly coordinate with all the luscious colors of the flowers!
And bunting??? Did you say bunting? Can't wait to see!


Hi Lucy, I would like to send you a huge thankyou - you have taught me to crochet! I've always wanted to learn, but found most instructions a bit confusing. I find your clear photos and stitch explanations a gods-send. I have started making my first blanket - a giant granny square basically, but I've found that on each row - the corners "move" round a little. It's producing a "windmill" effect. I wondered if you could tell me what I am doing wrong? There is a picture of the blanket on my new blog tangledingreen.blogspot.com if you or any readers could advise me I would really appreciate it ! Kristie x


oh what a riot of colour, I'm only wishing my garden were quite as lush!

I am in love with your blog! You are living a seemingly charmed life, both in where you live and in what you do. I want to summon up the creativity and inspiration to add some of your color and craft to my home. I also added a link to your blog on mine, I hope you don't mind. Cheers!


I am loving your colorful flowers! they are soooo beautiful!

Had to say - we've just been to the hive cafe nr bridport on yr recommendation and it was lovely! Best carrot cake I have ever had ! Thanks for a great tip!


beautiful! can wait to see how it turns out.

Café Chick

How absolutely beautiful! It's amazing how pretty flowers in bright colours can bring so much cheer.


Oh I wish it were flower buying season over here! My geraniums are just about to finish flowering. So sad with not much colour outside. I will just have to look at yours instead! May they florish, brighten up your outdoor area and look all summery.

very colorful.... just like your crochet blankies..
down under its winter so enjoying the summer goodness up there..


Lovely photos, and lovely flowers too. There's so much colour and beauty to be had in the summer months in the garden. I'm sure your pots will look a treat!


Beautiful flowers, I love your photographs. Would love to visit the nursery with you, when you take your camera next time :-)

I'm going to be making some bunting too this weekend, I saw a fab idea using Sarah Smith cloths at Lavender House (http://lavenderhouse.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/12/christmas-idea-no-4-sarah-smith-dish-cloths-christmas-bunting.html) so will be giving this ago later. I've been collecting her cloths for a while, they seem to beautiful to use just for cleaning!

Have a lovely creative weekend
