About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

Hi Lucy
another unusually coloured sunflower might be variety ' Earthwalker'. They have the lovely red-brown petals and look so good in the summer. I sowed some this year, and they are beautiful, basking in the sun.


Your green house looks so cheery with all it's little occupants! :) I hope they have a lovely time in there and grow like crazy. Yay for growing things yourself! :)

Isn't the color of the pansy's just beautiful, not seen any that color before. I had a few nasturtium growing, I pulled them all out around a month ago, they have self sown and I have around 40 plants now and much sturdier than the original, I am going to have to be ruthless and pull some out as they are strangling other little plants, although since tidying up the garden I have some spare spots for them. I do love a pretty garden and to look out of a window and see flowers.
Your garden is going to look very lush with flowers before long.

Ooooh I adore this post. I love my meadow right now. Yard that is.
That is the coolest little green house. Awesome day.
Thank you for your time.


Hi Lucy,
I have been following your blog for some time now. I live in California, but my homeland is Wales. I love seeing all the colors of your photo's, it makes me quite homesick sometimes. A little taste of home. We will be visiting for a month in August and hope to bring the sunshine with us.
Wishing you luck with all your seedlings. x

Sometimes you just have to get dirty to get happy!!


I love your new green house! I need one! - with two small boys running around the place glass is out of the question. Good luck with your basil plants, I'm a sort of a serial killer when it comes to basil!! - whether I grow it from seed (which very rarely works) or buy a healthy green and scented plant, it's days are always numbered with me. Any tips?


I realy like you Lucy... I'm here only to told you!


A great hug!


I'm so sorry to pop onto this post asking this question but I cannot seem to find the answer on your site. When making the triangle bunting, how did you keep them from curling? I took the idea for a friends newborn boy and I made one with soccer balls, basketballs and baseballs. But they tend to curl a bit and I'm trying to find a way to keep them hanging flat. The baby shower is in 2 weeks, hope you can offer some advice. Thank you for your time!

It was lovely, wasn't it? (shame it's back to normal today!) When it all goes beautifully like your day did, you really are 'in the zone' as they say; a special time to look back on.

Your mini green-house looks good - be very careful about the blowing -away thingy, mine got ripped to shreds...or at least the cover did!


Yep, I like unzipping our greenhouse too!

Although we have a little more room than you (but not enough space for a permanent full-sized greenhouse) we started with a £10 one like yours a couple of years ago, then progressed to the next size up where you can stand in it plus shelves either side (£20). This year we upgraded again and got a 6' x 4' zip-up greenhouse for £40 and we love it. You can hide in it, do potting up and watch the seedlings grow without being soaked in this horrid weather. Radio on, mug of tea and away you go! Brilliant!

Your seedlings will come on in leaps and bounds now that they have plenty of outdoor light.

Oooh looks like SOOO much fun!!

Dear Lucy I spent last Sunday clearing my little patch and taking out a fencing panel that was broken. Now i need to order some more. Think I'll
be taking a trip to the local gardening shop this weekend for some herbs or something I can grow on the window sill as it is still very chilly in the evenings and first thing in the mornings. Where is summer hiding?xx


So much pleasure in a little soil and some seeds. Happy plant growing (and cultivating in time).

Lucy, this is terrific news on the weather front. We just came home to California from a visit with our friends in London. All the talk was of the unrelenting cold and rain. We like to think we brought them a little California sunshine. There were several dry days and the past weekend was even quite sunny all day while we visited Cambridge. I loved how late it stays daylight there - enjoy that. Ha!
I love our blog! Are you planning things for the Queen's Jubilee? :-)


Hello Lucy! The pansies are lovely, they always make me think of my grand-ma as they are her favorite flowers. I love cosmos too. I spent a few hours in my garden yesterday as the weather was at last beautiful. I always feel better after gardening and reading your post I feel fine too. So peaceful!


Lucy, re. the basil, I once passed a house with the most amazing basil plants in the window,and it turned out an Italian family lived there. Their technique was to use big pots right from the start, sprinkle a generous amount of seeds on the compost and not bother with thinning or re-potting. I have since tried it, and have had the most amazing pots of basil that have lasted for ages.

Here's hoping all your plants grow beautifully Lucy! I also get the urge to talk to my plants which I consider to be perfectly normal ... I even play music to them too (but don't tell anyone please)...! lol x

Hope the sun shines warmly on your lovely plants, and that you are rewarded for all your hard work with a lovely display of food and flowers in the weeks to come! It's so hard to get anything to grow in this weather isn't it? - let's keep our fingers crossed for some lovely warm sunny days! X


I love your sunny happy blog, the seedlings look lovely and makes me want to get out in my garden.

Kate - The Garden Bell

On second look... am I spotting a collandier for a planter... Off to the Good Will Thrifty this morning on the search. What a great idea. Now, let's see what else I spot this sun beautiful morning here in HobbitLand. Yes, you still are a true blue Hobbit living in a world of inspirations. Dream Big and Dream On.....


Greetings from Philadelphia Lucy! I love the pansies. Such a pretty variety. I adore your garden too. You have a fantastic eye for color and placement and it shows in all you do. I am off for my first breath of Sea air for the season to Cape May, NJ. I hope your weekend is just as enjoyable. Thanks for sharing your life with us all:)
