Lucy Visits Sydney and The Blue mountains

The lovely Lucy arrived at my house in the Blue Mountains last week. I heard a little knock on my door and there she was with her little bag, her lucky carrot and her beautiful quilt.

Lucy came with me to work on the train to Sydney. We chatted about her travels so far. She hasn't made it overseas yet but she's seen more of Australia than I have! Brisbane, The Sunshine Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth... and now Sydney!! The view of the Harbour Bridge greeted us at Circular Quay Station where we got off.

A hop, skip and a jump and we arrived at the flower shop in time for a busy day at work.
Lucy helped me set up the shop. I like her taste in flowers, her favourites were these red Banksia Coccinea.
She also liked the forest of Cymbidium Orchids!
This native Gymea Lily is a like a giant triffid compared to little Lucy.

She may be small but she has a big heart!!

She made some friends...
But also had fun entertaining herself

We didn't forget the Opera House!!

The next day I got to show off where I live. The beautiful Blue Mountains! From city shop flowers to wild, free range bush flowers.
That's not a rabbit hole Lucy!
Breath taking scenery from Govett's Leap near Blackheath. This view amazes me every time!
And a beautiful clear, sunny, spring day!!
Besides sight seeing Lucy and I have had a fun time, talking about quilts, eating cupcakes, reading peoples blogs. It's been lovely spending time getting to know Lucy but I know she has places to go and people to meet. She's excited about her next bit of travel where she finally gets to leave Australia and head for strange far away lands...



  1. Lucky lucky Lucy. Looks like you both had lots of fun. I hope Cheeky Devil didn't influence her too much, although from the post about her time in Adelaide, she could probably teach him a thing or too!
    Swooning at the gorgeous flowers in the shop.
    It's made me want to go back to Sydney for a visit, I haven't been there for such a long time.

  2. Lucy how lovely to be learning about all those beautiful flowers! It looks like you have been having a great time in the 'Big Smoke'. Thank goodness you didn't decide to climb the bridge, I don't think my heart could have stood that..... and then back to the tranquil mountains for a recharge. I hope you had a chaperone for your outing with Cheeky Devil, he looks like a dubious character to me but then I am biased. I am sure you are looking forward to your flight, enjoy yourself and don't forget to send me an email. Love and Hugs, Mum xx

  3. You certainly gave Lucy a wonderful tour of Sydney and the Blue Mountains .. beautiful flowers and even a friend for Lucy! Thanks for sharing your time together with the rest of us!

  4. Lucy has the BEST fun on her travels, she gets to stop and smell the flowers and enjoy life ;D

  5. What a wide range of experiences you are having, Lucy! I think this should count as a liberal arts education!

  6. Ohh Miss Lucy, what a wonderful way to meet new friends and travel the world....Im now a follower and keen to watch the world through your cute bunny eyes :)

  7. Playing "catchup" with Lucy - my goodness but I am envious of what that little bunny is getting to see........... A trip of a lifetime.

  8. Simply beautifully captured shots...lovely!

  9. Beautiful flowers! Looks like you had glorious weather while she was visiting, I visited over summer and it was cloaked in mists and looked lovely and mysterious...looking at these pictures I finally get to see the gorgeous views :o)
