Good Afternoon! My name is Beverly and somehow I ran across your website and have been just excited to see your beautiful country and all of your colorful, hand items you have made! I crochet and I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy seeing someone else who likes bright colors like I do! Thanks for sharing! Beverly

I really like the pics and I was looking for such pics as I am making project and need these kind of pics..Thanks for sharing..


hi! I live in Vancouver Canada and the weather is crazy. rain rain rain rain... Because of the weather I have had hard time nowadays. BUT! these photos make me happy. Thank you for sharing these lovely pictures! cheers! : )


These pics just make me downright jealous of where you live! Near a castle, Near a canal with those neat litte boat thingys....ooooo I just want to visit so bad!


Wow! I see I wasn't the only one to be fooled.I wondered how it could be so very different North of the Border! Same here, grey, rain ,and no light.What a difference a month makes.


the canal is really beautiful! You are quite the photographer. I can't wait to see some more hooky goodness.

I have yearned to live in England my entire life. I have had this deep-seeded feeling that I was misplaced somehow and should have been there all along. Pictures like these affirm my inclinations. thanks so much for sharing.


Stunning and it makes me "home sick"! We used to live in West Yorkshire in a little village, Mytholmroyd, and it was just like that. The walks beside the canal, through the woods this time of year was heavenly. Thanks so much for sharing and for the trip down memory lane. x


I just happened across your blog whilst looking for help making a granny stripes blanket. I couldn't see anyway of mailing you so I am adding a comment to your latest post, lovely photos by the way, I was on the Skipton canal in September and it was no where near as sunny as your photos, none the less still a great experience.

Anyhoo, I just wanted to say book marking your sit,e printing off the granny stripes instructions and going to buy some yarn today, going back to crocheting after 30 years could be a bit of a culture shock I think but worth it if it turns out as lush as yours.

Once again thanks for the tutorial.


Hello I love your blog and I recently got a blog award I wanted to share with you. You can find it on my blog.


Wow indeed those are beautiful pics... they are threatening storms or were last time I looked. Tree breaking ones, which isn't good when we live in a house with three large ones right next to us. Son asked if he could sleep in the Den tonight just in case...

Those skies are just divine...


by 'eck I feel homesick now!


What a beautiful,peaceful looking place you live in. I'm feeling almost jealous!!


WOW!!!! What GREAT pictures! You live in a beautiful place! Hope you are having a great weekend!

Your photos are beautiful and too good to miss. Now I want to know where you live so we can do a weekend break now... it looks so pretty and the canals are lovely..


The photos are beautiful and I'm all for sharing the sunnier, better days when the weather is letting us down a bit. I'm way down in the south, just off he coast of France, so it's a case of 'so far so good' for us. When the bad stuff sets in it'll be very wet and windy indeed - gales straight off the Atlantic. I'm a colour junkie and at such times I wallow in lovely shots like yours...times when the world was green and oh so mellow. ;)


How beautiful!!!!What a gorgeous place to call home!


Bee-yoo-tee-ful pictures :-)
I LOVE how you celebrate the seasons and you've inspired me to take more notice of the seasons and capture them.


That was such a treat,your photos are gorgeous!

Beautiful pics. I'm feeling very homesick! Especially the one of the castle - it's one of my most favourite places in the world. Thanks for sharing.



Hay Lucy,
Enjoyed your pictures of the canal. My son wants to know what those green and blue boat thingys are on the canal. Are they house boats? If so, do folks live on them ?


Your town looks so wonderful and cozy


Wow! It's amazingly beautiful where you live! To me, it looks like a fairy tale. Funny how things ordinary to one person can be so exotic to another...
