Thank you for taking the time to document all the loveliness in your life. So inspiring. We have snowberry growing around us (seattle), but it never seems to get that lovely blush tint that your berries glow with. Will definitely bring in some branches. I am working up the courage to start a summer weight, linen ripple blanket in pale colors thanks to all your wonderful inspiring photos. Enjoy your autumn!

Unlike you I can't get to accept winter at all. Bring on Spring!
Are you not involved with Yarndale now?

Kay

Such a beautiful post, revelling in the season and being happy for what we have. The berries are so pretty too.

Your photos are lovely, especially the fifth and tenth ones down. Spring/Summer blanket full of lovely greens and blossom colors? Have you ever done one?

Hi Lucy,
Thank you so much for your lovely posts, they bring much joy and inspiration to so many of us. I’m not a blogger or very active on social media but I’ve been following your blog for the last couple of years sitting quietly in the background waiting for your magical posts to arrive and take delight at your beautiful blankets, they are amazing.
I love your openness and honestly that is so evident in your posts, and how you make your followers feel part of your magical journey. I’ve been a crafter all my life but never really mastered the art of crochet, but you have inspired me to give it ago. I’m practicing with little squares at the moment to get a feel of the hooks and which yarns I prefer. I’m really motivated just now but I have to go into hospital for a major operation next week so my first blanket will have to wait a little while. However, I will continue to practise and reading your blog will inspire me to get back on my feet ASAP, as there’s a “fresh new start” blanket calling. Thanks again for your wonderful posts

Your yarden is absolutely delightful. The proof that one does not need a large garden to have beautiful plants and flowers and a spot of nature.

Hello Lucy,
Yes Autumn has started, but what a glorious start! It's a brilliant idea to get your morning walk in early, the light is magical at that time of day, and you get everywhere to yourselves! Your beautiful pots also belie that it's almost October...it's the LOVE that keeps your flowers going. x

Hello Lucy,

Here autumn has started as well. I don’t want it to be true, but alas… it has.
Yesterday my husband and I prepared the outside already a bit for winter because we are always too late, being ‘surprised’ by the ‘sudden’ start of winter 😉. Now what’s left is the pool to cover and to prepare some plants to survive the snow, but that can still wait a little, I hope!

Today the summer wreath on our front door, with a smiling sun on a swing and flowers and fruits, made place for the autumn wreath, with coloured leaves, berries and toadstools.

We still manage without heating, although mornings at 6 AM in the bathroom are a bid chilly. Ah well, it makes me wake up a bit quicker and longing for my coffee before going to work 😊.

Dear Lucy, wishing you a wonderful week.

Greetings, Carine

Wow- your photos are so beautiful! So glad that you are in a happy space right now.

Joya Roy

Did you let your studio space go? Or is it covid safety measures that keep you from going to it?

Felicity

Dear Lucy - Would it be possible to get some guidance on how to do the Moorland blanket with a stripe worksheet like the Yuletide? I just wanted to mix the colours a bit more e.g. not have most of the green to start and most of the blue at the end (I know that's how your photo was though). I like the colours of both but ordered the Moorland first and then saw your colour worksheet for the Yuletide stripe. Not confident I could do the same for the Moorland colours myself. Thank you.

Thank you for your posts,

Yes these mild and sunny 'end of summer' days are a bonus after all the rain. One of the best things is the warm light and those lovely long shadows which you capture beautifully in your photographs.

Jacqui

Beautiful photos and writing ahhhh!
Once the kids are independant its a new life to enjoy 😁

Must try that feed.

It’s tricky isn’t it, finding somewhere to do our arts and crafts and also where to store our supplies. I also work on our dining table, but in the summer months we have a wooden shed outside which I work in too.

I really love your photos of nature, it’s so important to spend time outdoors in my opinion. Absolutely love reading your blogs.

CJ

I work on the dining table as well, it's a tricky balance isn't it. My eldest (the photographer) dragged me out for a few sunrise/sunset walks on holiday, and they were magical. Your pots are really lovely. I was just out deadheading the cosmos yesterday and thinking that I should keep doing it because I remember them still flowering in November at the allotment. I planted some butterfly-attracting pots (Sarah Raven's Butterfly Pink Pot collection) this year and they have been so pretty and constantly visited by bees I am definitely going to grow them again next year. Long may this glorious weather last. CJ xx

Hi Lucy, I am loving the photos of your yarden jungle. It must be heaven sitting out there amongst all the lovely flowers. I do hope that your flowers last all through Autumn. Here in New Zealand it is Spring and I am enjoying the Spring flowers coming up after Winter. Hugs, Rose x

Barbara

Lovely symphoricarpus orbiculaire…..Snowberry to me! They look lovely in your jug on the table……
Lovely photos on this blog…I can feel a watercolour coming on, if you allow me to use one of your photos, Lucy?

Rachel Turnbow

I live in Austin, Tx. Here in our part of the world we're enjoying the first "fall-like" weather (with a high temp still around 32C but very cool mornings dipping down to under 21C), and it has been such a lovely end to a tumultuous summer for us. I always enjoy your lovely blog posts. Thank you for keeping this upland sharing these snippets of your life with us!

Ruth Plowman

I live in the US. My husband lived in Suffolk when he was in the Air Force and we have enjoyed several trips to the UK. Seeing your beautiful photos brings back wonderful memories. Thank you for them!

Louise

Those autumn leaves and berries are all sorts of ridiculously beautiful. What type of berries are they? Your courtyard is #flowergoals . Just amazing. I love it when plants reach that jungley stage. It feels like they've loved how you've looked after them, stretched out their branches in ecstasy and spat out flowers of happiness. Xox from Kangarooland

Very enjoyable. It is spring here in NewZealand.
