I put a request out on my local Freecycle group for any spare flower and veggie seeds and look what a lovely generous Freecycler gave me yesterday!
I’ve never grown pumpkins but I’m definitely going to give them a try. Likewise with melons and beetroot.
The same Freecycler told me that my local allotment association holds a seed swap in early Spring so I’ll be loitering around there as well.
I’m now saving jam jars and plastic tubs for chutneys and seedlings. I’ve also just finished glueing 2 CDs back to back shiny side out and I’ve added rhinestones for extra light to bounce off it, should make a fun bird scarer unless of course they come along to admire it. Will be making a few more as soon as I beg more unwanted CDs.
I’m a big fan of Simon King’s wildlife cams at his home at Wild Meadows in Somerset. I love Scavenger Cam.
He feeds a pair of wild Buzzards with scraps from the local butcher or roadkill. I got this still from the cam on Friday.
Isn’t it a magnificent bird?
And this is Daisy trying to work out how a Buzzard got into my laptop.
My friend Stacey lent me an interesting book yesterday on crop circles.
They’re all UK based and there are some amazing intricate shapes. I wonder how they are done. I suppose if I read the book I’ll find out……or will I?
