On the Radio, Seeds and A New Birdhouse

29 May

1   Yesterday at the Museum, I was interviewed by BBC Radio Cornwall about what object I was putting into the Wildworks’  Cabinet of Cornish Curiosities and my piece was used in the Breakfast programme!   You can read about my object here.

2   I ordered some seeds a couple of days ago and they arrived today! I am so impressed with the company! They are called Seedaholic and provide a fantastic service. The seeds came beautifully packed and with all manner of useful and interesting information.  The ground is now ready and I plan to sow them tomorrow.

3   We’ve bought the most delightful new birdhouse with two storeys, the top one a nesting box and the lower level for seeds. The lovely Mr S put it up last night and whenever I see it, it makes me smile!

    Red oak leaf lettuce is practically a staple here. I have it in the greenhouse and recently sowed some more outside. Sometimes it will go to seed and I have had success with saving it.

      I only just discovered it and loved the flavour which is why I sought out the seeds. Glad to know it does well 🙂

    Sally, lovely story about your family and the rock. So, you have relatives here in the U.S.!

      Yes we do. My brother and his wife are in Atlanta, Georgia, my sister is now in Hawaii and I have nephews in Phoenix and Prescott, Arizona and a niece in North Carolina. My other brother and family are in Munich so we are well scattered! 🙂

    A little bit of whimsy is good for the soul; love the birdhouse.

      Maybe the birds will call in for a shave or a shampoo as well as a snack! 🙂
