I for one, am very glad you are still blogging, even if it were only tulip photos! But I love all your pics and writing, especially the way you explore themes and connections. Thanks!


I too am glad that you decided to continue blogging, I very much like your new direction. I began The Nine Tailors last night, very appropriate for the time of year, thank you for the recommendation. Happy new year.

I have been enjoying your writing for years (which includes four of your books), especially when you talk about knitting and Suffolk and of course, your fabulous tulips! I always think of you, and Elspeth Thompson, when I plant paperwhites each winter.
To know that you're continuing with your blog is a heart warming start to the new year!
Wishing you the very best for the coming year.


Jane you and your blog are carried in the hearts and creative minds of many of us. I am so happy you didn't leave blogging behind this year, I love reading your words, looking at your photographs and enjoying the themes and ideas that you put together. Wishing you a very happy, creative, bloggy 2015 X


Although I never comment I have enjoyed your blog for quite a while now. I love it because it is eclectic and we share a love of many of the same things. You take me to places I would never have found without reading your blog. Wishing you a happy and successful 2015 and now that I have broken the ice I really should leave more comments on your posts.


I, too, never comment, but I always read your blog -- it is one of my favorites. Thank you for bringing your perspective, comments and photos to us.



I'm so glad you didn't stop blogging after all. I look forward to your posts and photographs and I've made my own discoveries because of them. Long may it continue! Wishing you a very happy new year.


I'll join all the others in saying that I'm glad you decided to stick with it. Happy New Year!


Very glad you took up blogging again. I've enjoyed reading you through the years. Blessings on your new year!


So pleased you have decided to carry on blogging in the new year. I really enjoy your posts and the lovely photos. Thank you.


Keep on blogging! As a new blogger, and still hoping to find my voice, I find your blog inspiring. Happy New Year!

I wish you could hear my sigh of relief that you are "all in" on blogging again! I love your blog. Happy New Year!


Whew! You did not really mean good-bye last summer. When you said you were quitting your blogging, I thought...how will I get a decent art education, not to mention all the other topics you cover ? Today, I discovered you changed your mind, and was thrilled to see all the pages of blog reading to catch up on. Love the title: A Brocket in my Pocket.


You and your blog have had an impact on my life, and I'm glad that We The Readers have had an impact on yours. I wish you joy in the New Year!

Like the others I am so glad to know you will continue toCarry On! I have only just found you again and so I have lots to read and more paintings to look up again. Also like you I am saddened by Vanessa's death and have missed her only to find her again and also to lose her again. Like so many I wrote to her and admired her work


Just to say I am so glad that you have refound your blogging mojo. I was worried in the summer that you might stop, but am so glad that not only you are continuing but that it is working for you. Really enjoying what your are writing about. Happy New Year !


Thanks so much for sharing!!


Great to know that you feel renewed vigor for your blogging journey. As you can see from the above comments people really enjoy reading your writing. On a personal note I am looking forward to more 'Brockets in my pocket'. I love it when a quilt pops up too!


I live in Canada and have followed your blog, and now your Instagram posts, for a while. You have created in me a love for, and appreciation of, art, architecture, texture, and literature (even visited Persephone on a trip to London). You are an inspiration. Thank you for continuing your blog.


There are a few bloggers who stand out with their intelligent writing. You are one of them. I, like many others, are pleased you have decided to continue.


I've been enjoying your words and photographs for years. In fact, yours is the first blog I started reading when a friend pointed me to it. It's been comforting and inspiring, so much so that it led me to start my own (as well as to start knitting socks). Thank you and Happy New Year from New York City.

Jane Brocket
