Hi Lucy, your blog posts are beautiful.
I think crocuses are pretty hardy, we have been having overnight temps of around minus 5°C recently and our crocuses are popping up all over the place 🥰
All the best.


All those georgeous blankets together,cosy,colourful heaven.
Hyacinths are wonderful and I love the scent of them. I have some growing in the greenhouse at the moment and will start bringing them into the house very soon.
Happy week to you Lucy x


I remember having the same reaction to blood oranges when I was little :-) . (It's the name, as well as the look, isn't it). However, am happy to report that the adult me now appreciates their yumminess too.

Your blog is just *the best* for details like that-love it so much.


It's so nice to see you blogging again :-)! Enjoy the small signs of spring!

Hi Lucy Here on Vancouver Island, BC Canada we are having below freezing temps the last few days. Fickle is the correct word for sure! We had a taste of spring and then it changed. There were saying we might have a bit of snow...no thanks, is my comment. I've been itching to get into the flowerbeds and pots and do a clean up in readiness, but I know it is too early for that in my neck of the woods. Thank you for sharing your walks. Rather you do it than me! LOL Take Care, Hugs, MO

Beautiful photos!

I love the fickleness of winter turning to spring. Your posts are so well written and I can just imagine myself there. I love making your blankets and still do even here in sunny Arizona USA! I'm a quilter, but the blankets that are loved the best are yours! Happy 2/22/22!

Lucy, I have just discovered your blog and I enjoyed this entry. We are watching the PBS All Creatures Great and Small with gorgeous scenes of Yorkshire. I got to visit England once, my lifelong dream, but it was in the southern part of the country. Here in central Texas we rarely have snow….though we had a beautiful one last year along with 1 degree temps, creating a crisis for us Texans. I will continue to look forward to your blog visits and take a look at crochet, which I’ve never attempted…..I stitch and quilt.

Thank you for the heads up on blood oranges. I love them, too, and hadn't realised they were about, so pleased to buy some yesterday. I've followed you since my sister introduced me to you and love all your comments. Thank you!


Lucy! I discovered you back in 2010, I have followed you off and on throughout the years when I was attempting to crochet. Now I have two granddaughters and I want to make them some granny square throws, and I am now following you again. Thank you for what you do. Your tutorial links have helped me so much. Although I have not mastered crocheting yet, it is a labor of love to make these throws for my grandbabies.


Lovely crochet work! It is a wonderful feeling to be by the fire after a walk outdoors in the cold. I have been seeing lots of photos of the floods in England. Glad you are far from that. We have a terrible blizzard today here in Central North,US. Thanks for sharing!


Such lovely photos Lucy, I have followed you for years and am in Australia but had a Yorkshire mum. I love the look into her life you give. I have never seen snow falling, it looks so lovely


Hello from Estonia ! I just need to give you feedback about your blog. It is so-so interesting to read about your crochet works, your everyday life and last, but not least life in England generally.
Beautiful photos, lovely colours, amazing pieces of hand work - I've been following your blog for a couple of years. Thank you !


How nice to have a sprinkle of snow in the morning to sun and blue skies by afternoon. I love oranges and I'm eating my share of them these days. It's nice to see the crocuses beginning to pop up and your pink hyacinth is gorgeous! Have a great week.


The winds here over the last few days have been pretty worrying at times. A couple of our fence panels became loosened and in one case completely down, but other than that not not much damage here. Phew!😌 In my opinion snow is always best looked at through a window, and preferably on a puzzle! And I hate seeing it fall - gives me the willies!😨 Our crocuses are up but getting spoiled by the weather.😬


Lovely post Lucy & I agree that weather can be ever so fickle & ours has also been playing strange games of late. I love the snowy photos, but Little Bs nest looks great as do your pretty hyacinths & that has made me want to go to a nursery now & nab some hyacinth bulbs for our upcoming winter too. Stay warm, take care & hugs.


Don’t worry about the crocus. I live in the northeast US and the crocus here are regularly pelted with snow, ice and “wintry mix”. Crocus are masochistic, coming up in the most beastly weather.

Thank you for the lovely little peek into your world.


So happy to have discovered your blog today! I love all I've seen of it thus far. And it seems like less and less people are updating their blogs anymore, having switched to Instagram - which has its merits, but for me not nearly as interesting as a blog.

I am envious of your snow too! Here in Los Angeles, it is a beautiful sunny day, about 70 degrees. While I appreciate it I also long for the variety of "real" weather, more like what I recall growing up in New York.

We have topsy turvy here in the Boston area. Snow squalls one day, 60 degree weather the next. Glad to see that crocus coming up. A harbinger of spring. For me, it was a chipmunk sitting on my back stairs. Hurry spring. Love to see the granny stripe blanket. I’m currently working on one with leftover yarn while I wait for the Harbor border!!


I’m glad I went out to play in the snow with my great niece. We bought some chips, which warmed our tummies, en route to the nearby field. We pushed and pulled the sledge along with much laughter! No hills about here. All melted this morning and I’m quite happy if that’s all the snow we have this winter ❄️ ⛄️


It does look pretty with a sprinkling of snow, but I'm glad it didn't last too long. It was breezy here near the Severn, but nothing too bad. By mid-afternoon it was pretty much all over. Love the nest of blankets, it's so cosy to go out in the freezing cold and come back to a lovely warm home isn't it. We had a power cut here, nothing to do with the storm, just a coincidence, so I am extra appreciative of the heating at the moment. CJ xx


Thank you for another lovely post Lucy. We had wet snow over on the East Yorkshire coast too. It laid for a little while but was soon gone. My tiny twin grandsons donned their snow suits and stood in the garden gazing in wonderment at the swirling snow. They came in to hot chocolate and crochet blankets too ! 😃


That snowy park looks absolutely idyllic


Here in Alberta, Canada, it was +6 C today, with warm air and melting snow. And this afternoon, it changed to -8 C, with colder temperatures over night. We made sure to get all our shopping and tasks down so we can stay home the next few days while the snow falls and the air is cold! Almost Spring .... X Chy


30 degrees here in coastal South Australia- but overcast and a little humid
No snow here- ever.I hate being cold so suits me
