Such beautiful photos of a perfect spring morning. I'm here in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales, on the opposite side of the world, where we are in late autumn. My mornings are subzero frosty crisp, with huge unblemished blue skies and the leaves in the orchard and garden turning red. Similar weather, opposite season. I was born and raised in the North East (north of you, between Sunderland and Newcastle)and love reading about your beautiful town. It takes me back to our village before the developers arrived. Keep blogging Lucy, I love your zest for life and hooky creations. I'm currently making a hexy granny rug for the comming cold weather.


Thank you for the beautiful walk!


Thank you. Place where you live is absolutely gorgeous!


The colors are spectacular! Thank you for such a lovely look at your area. XOXO


Thanks for sharing, I loved every minute of it!
I must say, I think I'm in love with the english countryside.


Your posts make me want to visit England!


Thank you for the lovely 'virtual' walk around your little town. Your photos are amazing and always bring such a smile to my face.


It looks cold but bright and lovely! BTW, those blue garbage bins blow me away. Love 'em.

Lucy, I adored all these images. As a boat lover and sailor, the canal boats just thrill me. I must ask.. those wonderful painted watering cans.. so they can leave those on the top of the boats and no one takes them? That is wonderful to have no crime like that. I lived on a houseboat for 5 years in the Columbia River and used to lower a bucket in the river to water my potted plants on the deck, they loved the water full of duck poo and all. :-) I just posted some pics of my lilacs on my blog... hope you come and see.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)


My parents are British, and I've spent many rainy, dreary summers in England - and although I find the patchwork nature of the countryside lovely, I never really saw the beauty of England (even in the rain!) until I started following your blog. You have a real talent for capturing these things.


Thank you for that lovely walk. I shared it with you. Oh, how miss my home country. Big sigh!
Always love the way you write and tell stories, and stunning photos. Thank you again.


You're right...it was glorious!! What a glorious neighbourhood you live in. I'd never want to leave!

So beautiful! I would really love a close up shot of the round window on the boat whose picture you took at 8:14. Looks like a lovely crocheted round something filling it up! I haven't been out for a walk all alone in ...I can't remember! It's been forever!



Even the rubbish tins in the cobbled lane looked beautiful , what a lovely walk, thanks for the pictures.


What a gorgeous, crisp stroll you had!


Thanks for sharing these lovely photos. It's a beautiful place to live in!


Thanks for taking the time to take us along on another of your lovely walks around your beautiful corner of the world. Much appreciated.
Hope the rest of your weekend is as wonderful.


More beautiful pictures Lucy, thankyou for sharing.


Thank you for the trip around your neighborhood.

It's beautiful!

The best part of it was your description, the love that comes through in your words - the gorgeous pictures are just the icing on the cake.


I love the watering can with the foxglove painted on it! Something that pretty would give my own pots of pansies a much greater chance of survival!

Cara Louise

is that a doily I spy in 8:14 ?! in the window of the little boat!!!! yay!!!!


Gorgeous! I wish I lived in your little Yorkshire town!

Lynne Gill

Beautiful. Just beautiful.

I'm going to look at them all over again, then I am going to bed. It is midnight. Night night. Have a happy weekend yourself.


What magical photos and such a special part of the world to live. Lucky you indeed


Oh, it is a real treat to look at those wonderfull pictures. Today has been cold and grey with us and it' s nice, now I just back from work, to take a refreshing walk. Even if it's secondhand!
