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

That rose looks very like one I have in my garden - climbing over the pergola. You're right; it smells gorgeous.


I think the rose might be a St Paul's Himalayan- very vigourous. If you are thinking to add scent, but not get a disease prone rose, David Austin roses are worth a try. They have captured some of the old rose smells on new cultivars. Some are ok for pots. A climbing rose in a sunny spot in a pot would be happy on a trellis. Good luck!


I've just been reading on another blog of temperatures of 113F.! I love our UK summers; warm, green & fragrant. Love the post- reasons to be cheerful!

Early evenings are the best time of day :). We've got a honeysuckle that is huge this year. It is always very fragrant in the evenings, as is the orange blossom at the front.


There is NOTHING like an English Summer so enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!!!! xxx ♥


Dear lucy, îm so happy to read you and pratice my English. Thanks a lot. You are also an English teacher. have a nice day!


Lucy, if you want scent and don't have the place for roses - try a jasmine bush. We put one against our stone wall - you could do it in a pot as long as it has a frame or something to climb up - we have a criss-cross wooden frame against the wall! We planted it because the French equivalent to the Council planted one across the road from us in just a foot square patch with a post for it to climb up - every evening the scent just drifts out from them - it's to die for - go for it!!!


You've inspired me to go and make a delicious salad to go with the pasties I bought for our dinner. I shall be leaving out feta, which I hate.


Oh dear Lucy with the Tour de France riding thru on Saturday you must beyond busy beside all the mandalas and first and foremost your dear family. Now take a breath or two...or three!!!;)...we are here with you always. Not to fret. I will be up bright and early...across the pond...to see the excitement in Skipton on Saturday...and taping that portion for the family. Waving just incase;-D xo

I am glad your elderflower cordial worked out...it looks delicious!


Where can I find that recipe Lucy? That book looks like it has some amazing recipes.

The walk along the canal seems so peaceful. I can't walk where I live it's too darn hot! I keep myself in the air conditioning. Would love to have a canal to walk by each day. You are a lucky girl! Thanks for sharing!

I look forward to next week then (and the ta-dah moment). :) All the flowers are so pretty yours and others. I've just yarn bombed a bicycle basket with roses, now to find some dry days to paint the bike it will go on, then add it all to my garden, maybe with one of those lovely crochet wheel covers...I too love cold salads for dinner in the hot days of summer.


Your flowers are growing fast! I do the same thing with my flowers, now that I'm finally growing some successfully this summer for the first time ever, it seems. I sneak up on them from the sliding door off my kitchen, just to surprise myself with the look of them. :)


Gorgeous Summer things Lucy....looking forward to your Ta-dah a lot.

p.s. we just booked a holiday...to West Bay....eeek, I'm so excited to finally get to see all the wonderful places you share here.

So looking forward to your blankety ta dah! I'm glad that the school bikes are nearly done, I can't wait to see them at Yarndale (I've bought my ticket yaaay!) I'm feeling rather a numpty because having made my mandala I realised that the deadline was the end of June, NoT the end of July as I mistakenly thought :-( I'm reeeally looking forward to seeing all those beautiful mandalas on display at Yarndale though! Love Jo xxx

Anna Maria Quagliero

I love your summer hill view !!!


Lovely summery photos! I'm rather jealous of that canal walk, it's prettier than mine! Elderflower cordial, yum. Just about to start drinking the elderflower champers here!


That rose looks remarkable like one I have in my garden which is called Little Rambler. So apt for you and your family, Lucy often out on your town and country walks. My rose is just finishing now as I am in the south east of England so probably a week or so ahead. It is always lovely but it's been especially full of flowers and fragrance this year.

Beautiful sunny day here too but Cold! Love winter days like this. I love the smell of my daphne up my front path which is coming into bloom now. x

Anne Glossop

Those roses look glorious! I enjoy an evening walk with Meg my elderly border collie. She stops frequently to sniff and it encourages me to stop and take in the scents and sights and appreciate how fortunate I am :-)


A really cheerful and positive post Lucy. Love it. All your Yarndale work wi be we worth it. I have a cheery post this week too, please pop over and see I would live you too! http://eclectichomelife.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/cupcake-bunting.html?m=1

I am walking right beside you along the canal and sprinkling the pots as we pass by before having a seat out in your garden with a sip of the delightful sweet treat of a english afternonn toddy before we even discuss why I haven't picked up my hook in a while. But but but......I do have a healthy reason. Glad to have cisited hobbit land today.


Beautiful. So glad to read that you're surrounded by floral loveliness. :-)


Lovely happy post as usual - doing a blog is hard work and you have loads on at the moment. Amazed you are fitting it all in and I'm still so excited to have got that last unexpected place on your bower bird workshop. Can't wait!! xxxxx Kathryn

Amy at love made my home
