hello Lucy,
I am a grandmother from India. I love your blog and must say that I am your fan. I do bit of crochet, and your blog inspires me to try for more. I am lucky to see your beautiful country thro' your blog.
Why don't you write a book with all these photographs?
All the best dear. May God bless you.


Thank you for such a beautiful post Lucy - I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it here across the ocean :)

I just awarded you the Versatile Blogger Award!

Slugs/snails will not cross copper so if you want to protect special plants cut small strips of copper sheets and make collars around the base of the plants, or circle the plants further from the base to keep them away arching stems/leaves.... here on this side of the pond sheet copper is easily found at the local hardware store :)


Hi Lucy! I discovered your amazing blog about a month ago I think, and absolutely LOVE it! I LOVE all the color you use and as soon as I saw your Granny Stripe afghan I had to start one! Hubby is now claiming it because he loves it so much, even though it has many more "girly" colors in it, than guy colors.. I love your new rose pattern and cannot wait to try it out! Thank you so much for sharing your life, your talent and your love of color with all of us! It brings back wonderful memories from when I lived over sea's and makes me want to go back soooo badly!


Another lovely post! Thank you! Happy belated birthday to Little Lady!


Oh how I can relate to your feeling regarding Little Lady. My own little ladies are 11 and 13 now and the time seems to be slipping through my fingers. Watching them move through those transition years is a joy and also such a sorrow.

Happy May to you, Lucy! Thanks for the inspiration and bit o' English life you give me each week.


Yes, it may be murky outside but in our homes we can still find happiness and things to make us smile.
Happy belated Birthday greetings to Little Lady.
Let's hope May is a month of warmth and sunshine outside as well as in.

Hello! What a wonderful stone to make a sweet gift. Your pictures are so nice. Thank you for that positive message!
Regards from Brittany


I love reading your monthly re-caps; such a nice way to remember the lovely, happy things that make the messy bits endurable! And I do agree about the kids growing up too fast. Our oldest is almost 20 and just ventured to your part of the world for a 7 week study abroad. It seems only yesterday she was just dipping her finger into the lip gloss pot...
Have a beautiful week!


Lovely mosaics! I still haven't done one yet. It all seems a bit complicated but sometimes just doing a new thing is easier than it sounds, eh?


You never cease to lift up my spirit!

The "window view" shot is brilliant where you show all the weathers! very clever,



Here's hoping that all of those May flowers help make April's gloomy weather a distant memory. Wishing you bright and lovely things (and weather.)

Enjoy your coming weekend.


I love how you see color in everything around you! I'm enjoying our short lived spring here and not looking forward to the heat that is just about upon us now. I too am trying to infuse more bright colors in my world and am inspired by all the color of your blog :)

Heres to a wonderful May! Cheers


You've certainly brightened up my rain drenched Thursday with this lovely colourful post, a truly lovely April, roll on May ... and please i am begging the weatherman to tell us its going to be a tad sunnier!


I wanted to write SUMMER LIGHT, sorry!!!


lovely post!!
hope your May is more springlike.
Here in the East (Spain) it's been weard too, but now it's becoming REAL SPRINGTIME!!
Anyway, looking at your blog is always like SUMMER LIGTH!!!!

thanks for your beautiful blog!. makes my world better.


Wow what a nice post this is!!Thanks!


It's not just the things you make that are beautiful and inspiring, but also your blog which fills me with energy to do something.


Hi Lucy - what a lovely post. The reminiscing reminds us all of the good bits life brings us. Lily. xxx


Just popped in for my Bright Colours fix! I hope that the weather starts to improve now that May is here (have my fingers crossed though!) I bet your daughter will have a fabulous birthday sleepover - memories of such things here with my 2 girls (my son's sleepovers were always a bit more rackety.)


Hello! Liking your monthly mosaics, great idea to summon days of your life and and see what was great and what made you more philosophical:)
Have a nice May ahead, I am sure it is going to be bright and sunny! Hugs from India :)


Hi Lucy. I sat in bed this morning in rain drenched Norfolk with my cuppa and 'Lucy Living'. Just adore your inspirational blog thank you .meg
