Your pictures really make me realize how much I miss England and how long I haven't been there.


i really love reading your blog ^^


Simply lovely. My question is, do people live on those boats?


You make wonderful photos, I've been looking at them now and then. Very comfortable feelings.


Dear Lucy - I just want to thank you for sharing your wonderful world with us - your blog touches my heart and inspires me in so many ways. Thank you, thank you xx


what great pics! i am enjoying similar fall impressions here in deutschland as well... lovely of you to share all this! love the canal most because thats something i dont have nearby so these pics are especially cherished... you are so right about the breathtaking light. fall is so special and i wouldnt want to miss it even if the days are ever-so-fastly becoming shorter.
i, too, have a new lucy-stash... sit in front of it and just admire the brilliant color combo as if it were a huge flower bouquet! and if it is of any condolence, i can't say what i will be starting first either! (@garden bell) so many ideas circling in my head!
i am so happy to read that there are a few pennsylvanians out there, reading and commenting lucy's blog as well... heartfelt greetings to you in the homelands!

Thanks again for taking the time to share such beautiful photographs. Breathtaking.


You are blessed to live in such a beautiful place! Thank you for sharing the beauty where you live and reminding the rest of us to stop and take a second look at the treasures hidden in our neighborhoods.

Beautiful photos you have taken Lucy...you have the soul of a poet!!
Enjoy your deserved weekend with as much hapiness as you can!!
Hapiness happens when we find the god of small things and let us involve by them. Be happy.

I got a tear or two in my eye reading this blog entry! You have a very special place there, and it's so lovely to read time and time again how much you love it. I love nature, but am not well and have trouble getting out of doors for any time at all these days, so reading about your walks and seeing your pictures is always welcome. Thank you.


I know how you feel we have just come to live in a historical village called Evendale in Tasmania , today they have a penny farthing bike ride paople come from all over we have beautiful weather at the moment
Your pictures are amazing


What beautiful surroundings, the colours in the pictures are just astounding ! It is indeed a charming place that you're living in !

So lovely. Yorkshire is God's country!


Hi Lucy,
wonderful photos -- your every day life is beautiful.
I´d sent you a birthday present in the first week of October.
Has it reached you? Please give me an answer...

rewarding little moments!! at a low cost!!! coffee and a stroll with friends..simple, great!!


Your town is indeed a lovely town - I even thought of moving there yeeaaars ago but ended up in Scotland!?! I even had my photo taken by that very waterfall - it really does have some stunning walks nearby. I even had a little jaunt on a special boat up and down the canal when Spud was little so it's lovely to see it in all its Autumn finery.What a lucky girl you are.

Love and stuff xx


Really beautiful. I love autumn colours. You are very lucky to live surrounded by all that. I like the fact that you appreciatte and enjoy it, not many people do that nowadays. Have fun!!


love the place you live

Hello Lucy
Its Lucy from Rocket and Bear, ummm I thought I'd drop you a line just to run an idea past you? I knit and sell stuff, I have one wool supplier that I buy wholesale from but the choice of wool is limited and to find other suppliers that wholesale to makers impossible. So... I'm thinking of opening an online wool shop that would only sell wool on cones in bulk to makers (people like you and me)ie min orders 5 or even 10 kilos I've just bought the URL mylovelywoolshop.com
What do you think? am I bonkers do you source your wool easily (I'm not fishing for your supplier)
I would love to hear your thoughts?
Kind regards


What a beautiful place to live!


You live in the most gorgeous place. It's so idyllic and pretty and just... aah! Every time I read one of your posts, I smile. Thank you for that.


Such rich, warm colors! Your walk with the little ones sounded very fun too. And thank you for sending me some blog love! Xoxo


Such a wonderful way to spend a fall day! It brings back memories of similar days with my sweet littlun who is now a man. :o) Your fall colors are gorgeous.


I live in the South...Texas to be more precise...not much in the way of fall weather, fall colors, or cool fresh air. Lots of wonderful things here too, but reading your post I feel like I could just pick up and move to your town!! So beautiful!!


I love your little neck of the woods where you live! So enjoy your pics! This past weekend we had a freak snow storm (PA, USA) and wound up with about 12 inches of snow! Of course we lost our power along with it. :(
It was so pretty but cold too soon! Will be interesting to see what the rest of the winter brings with getting snow so early! Have a great day!
