Hello and very belated but very best Birthday wishes! I've been away from the Internet for a while because one reason and another, but catching up now and glad to hear you had a lovely day! And I love your phrase "The Wanties" -- I know that feeling very well!


Happy Birthday! I'm 41 too--and I've been quite enjoying it so far!


Happy Birthday! Sorry it's late. Loved your visit to Harlow Carr, I have a thing about vegetable gardens too!


One more wish to add to the inbox - I am glad that you had a lovely day! Thank you for sharing it via photos. I would love to wander in that garden; especially with a pocket full of colorful sweets out of the jar you mentioned! :)


Happy Birthday!!!

Happy belated Birthday! I got the wrong date from the post of last years. Glad to know you had a wonderful day. I would love to walk through some of the gardens you have posted...I live in America and long for England! Have a wonderful time with the rest of pregnancy...I was 40 when I had my unexpected one..she just turned 10! How I wish she was still little and cuddly! That's what grandkids are for though! Thanks for a wonderful blog!


Happy belated birthday! Your post is like a gift for us, lovely pictures! I hope the tea and cake helps, it's usually does!

Happy Birthday! I was 40 and pregnant, so I know how you feel! I love your blog-look forward to it everyday. It has inspired me to start crocheting again! In 2 weeks, I have made your lovely bag(which now holds my projects), 2 scarves and am starting a baby blanket for my new grandbaby! Hope you have a great day! Keep the lovely pictures coming-they are a real day-brightener!


Happy Birthday Lucy!! So beautiful flowers you have there, ours here in Finland are nearly all frozened. Some sorts are still flowering, not many. This morning we had 3,5 degrees below zero. But....my HUGE ripple blanket is soon warming me, now is just third of me! Beautiful, lovely after-birthday!


Belated Happy Birthday!
Harlow Carr looks stunning.


Happy Birthday Lucy..sounds like a beautiful fun filled day....hated being forty myself loved 50 and can't wait for 60!!
Like to thank you for a rippling good day too...made a ripple sample cushion yesterday afternoon ready for a rippling good winter throw for the ugly sofa in the sitting room xx


Happy Birthday Lucy!


Belated happy birthday from Austria!
Hope that your 41st year will be a great one, full of colours and joy!!!
We have several October birthdays in the family and I like these autumn celebrations :-)


Happy happy Birthday dear Lucy! Sorry this is a little late(working this week so a bit behind with blogging) but I'm glad to hear you had such a lovely day. Harlow Carr ~ oh I love it when you talk about familiar Yorkshire places. Love that garden, especially the veg patch. Did you see Nigel Slaters programme last week? There was a lady with a back garden turned completely into a veg patch. Looked wonderful. Very 'Good Life', my all time favourite programme. Hope the wobbles have been overcome with lots of cake and Birthday love. Fiona X
