About Me

Dear Lucy, this is all very very Nice! But how about the tutorial of the French Bower Bird? You promise and you promise and nothing happened so far. I am waiting........ I know you are BUSY but please, just post the tutorial and I will be happy and I won't be bothering you..... for a week, hahahaha! Love from me!~


I love the woods in spring too:) This looks like a beautiful walk!


Quelles magnifiques photos. Cela donne envie de faire une longue promenade dans cette forêt.
Merci pour ce beau reportage.

Once again, thanks for the glorious pictures. I get so homesick for REALLY GREEN TREES, out here in OZ, so I get my fix by reading your blog every Friday. Makes my husband happy, too, as I'm not always wanting to fly back,to what I still think of as home (after 49 years here) cheaper than an airfare! Keep up the good work.
p.s. the crochet is great,too.


What a beautiful place. Looks so serene. Thank you for sharing!


oh my what fabulous greens! The (not entirely) wild garlic is starting to flower in my garden too and it looks so pretty.

Dear Lucy, Thanks for your lovely comments on the apples. The pattern is now up for them but you may have to scroll past a couple of posts to get there. Lots of love, Kate xxooxx.


Thank you for the inspiring photies :) Took ourselves up there today after my daughter saw your pics, had a beautiful day! The bluebells are out now by the way, more on the farside bank (we started at the pavilion, so after you cross the aquaduct) and they look fabulous!


I love how spring came out of no where all of a sudden... We were away camping May Day weekend, and suddenly when we came back the garden is alive with green! The rain is a drag, but I think it will be doing the plants some good and hopefully we'll have a fab show when everything is in bloom!

love reading your blog its always so cheery - bluebells are my favourite and have been out in Bristol about a week now - beautiful. Hope it won't be long before they are out in your neck of the woods. Thanks x :)


Another lovely post and another lovely reminder of my childhood. We used to go there on Sundays too - happy memories. In those days, the cafe had bumper cars outside and I have imprinted in my memory the weird multicoloured blob shapes attached to the ceiling! Strange what you remember....but I loved it all. Can't wait to go back - but in the meantime, you lovely posts bring it back very vividly. Thank you. x

I live in the desert, which has its own sort of lovely and beauty - but I have to tell you - I love the lush green of where you live and all the color! It looks like a magical place!


Lovely pictures of almost Spring. I just wish it would finally, properly arrive.

Being a little further south both wild garlic and bluebells are in flower and I also have robin chicks in my shed! X hope you can revel in the blue soon. X

I used to live near you and loved going to Bolton Abbey and the Strid. I recognise so much from your pictures especially around your town. makes me feel quite homesick!

Anne Marie

I love that tree. It reminds me of the one in The Lord of the Rings!

Jennifer Crewe

It is not right that this site http://www.duitang.com/people/mblog/70113514/detail/?next=70113768can just lift your complete tutorial on your birdies. Bet they have more as well. I was going to comment but since it seems to be in Chinese it won't let me comment

I have just started your ripple blanket. It is looking so nice.

Sonia Petitpoint

Wonderful landscape !


Hi Lucy just to let you know that if possible you need to get hold of the latest Australian homespun, it has a double page spread on vintage caravan bits that you would love and where to buy them. Thanks for all your colourful bits and pieces. Your area is definitely on m agenda next time we travel o s .Heather from Australia

Ooh I love how green this post is! lovely photos, gorgeous colours. Hope you find the bluebells soon - the late spring has definitely delayed them this year. But if the National Trust are right, this late spring might mean a Good Summer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgYcXobUKq0 Wahooooo!!

I love "visiting" Yorkshire through your blog...your pictures are breath-taking!
I have been inspired by your blog to do two things...start my own blog (it's in the works) and learn to crochet. Your blankets are beautiful...they make me want to create my own. Today, with temperatures back down in the 50's her in New England, a warm, colorful, colorful blanket would be delightful! Where do you suggest I begin? You can email me if you would like.
Thanks so much for sharing your colorful world with us...it's so inspiring!
