Beautiful!!! You truly have an eye for colour.


Some images just makes one breathe a little more easily! Thank you for your beautiful blog - from time to time I find myself returning for a pleasant stay in your coloroasis :) Cheers from Norway


Hey! The moors really ARE purple!

So ironic. I'm drinking tea, eating a few cookies and cruising my favorite sites. I see your updates and as I munch my Cadbury's oat/chocolate biscuit FROM ENGLAND, I wonder what would be an American cookie you might be eating. Ha! Oreos. Of course. (I hardly ever get McVittie's or Cadbury's - only when I want to relive the times I've visited England and Scotland.) Just kind of cracked me up.

Now I want to make something with these beautiful colours. Thank you for sharing!!

Yes, I did spot him..thanks for sharing your country side...after such a hot and dry summer, that was especially refreshing. Your Alabama Friend.


had i grew up somewhere like this where heather actually grows wild, I might have had an appreciation for my name as a child.i think it's amazing that I am so fond of that shade of purple. :)

I was in Yorkshire(Pudsey, Skipton) in September ages ago. Still miss it so much! Lucky you.
Thanks for the pictures.

Beautiful photos, Lucy. In your next life, you should be a photographer, you can take some stunning photos.

Oh, to be in England! So, so lovely!


Chocolate buttons are just that - button sized chocolate, Hyla. Loved by children and adults alike. I live near you Lucy, just down the valley. Went on a barge holiday on the Leeds Liverpool canal and saw the most exquisite scenery and all within Yorkshire.Truly is God's own county.


yes, it was the grouse! he snuck in quietly!


beautiful photos.... I have never been anywhere where the heather is that color... gorgeous! I have missed something!


just being pedantic but if u live in a hundred year old house its edwardian not victorian


The Mr and I used to visit his nan down in Somerset near Exmoor when we lived in the UK and during the summer, we'd always make sure to take a drive through the park before heading home. (North of London) Such beautiful scenery!


What a fantastic landscape - a blanket of heather over the Moors! Lovely photos!


Wow! That's gorgeous! I can see how that can improve your day...greatly! :-)


Such a wonderful view! Lucky you, sounds fantastic!xx

It makes me wish that I lived in England, the colours of the moors are surreal and whimsical, you've picked up lovely movement and patterning in your photos, as always. Love the effort you put into your blog and enjoy the interest and dedication that you put into your craft. With that said I rave about your site to my friends also interested craft so you can look forward to other Aussie followers.
Thanks from Monique. Adelaide Australia see me at [email protected]

Heather is beautiful. Very pretty pictures. Most of us are lucky in having some lovely green spaces around us - even if it the park. My park is lovely! Lovely little grouse, I don't think I have ever seen one and no as it was hiding I didn't see it at first!

Just wanted to show this picture also http://rattlingon.typepad.com/rattling_on/2010/06/my-very-own-nanny-mcphee.html#comment-6a0111685b0529970c0154352fa032970c
It's a lovely granny blanket taking inspiration from the film Nanny Mcphee. Yes it's got brown in it! But isn't it beautiful and colourful?


The photos are gorgeous. Totally makes me want to reenact a little Wuthering Heights!
