This morning, we went to the beach at Strete Gate for our early walk and I was struck by how quickly the year is progressing. It seems only a little while ago, rather than two or three months, that the beach was in full bloom ….
Today the early summer flowers had all gone…
Leaving behind a tangle of seedheads ….
Perfect for becoming stuck to furry coats! This means lots of brushing when we return home from walks at this time of the year as grass seeds in particular if left in the coat can work their way into the skin and cause painful problems.
Now is the time for collecting seeds for next year, and my friend Jacqui who’s a keen gardener, as well as talented illustrator (Flapdoodledesigns) has created a lovely little collection of printable seed packets – perfect for keeping seeds safely – and great if you’re planning to share your harvest as gifts or swops ….
And she’s very kindly sharing one of these designs with Bustle & Sew readers – absolutely free! Just CLICK HERE to download your free Cornishware mug seed packet printable (with full instructions for assembly). If you’d like the full set, then they’re available to purchase from Jacqui’s Etsy Shop.
And finally … Rosie snapped this picture of me assembling the homemade sausage rolls for my party.
I had no idea she was taking it! But I simply had to share – don’t you just love the way my “helper” is licking her lips in hopeful anticipation?!
