Feed the Birds

This simple bird food wreath looks very jolly hanging from the Blackthorn tree in my garden. It’s made in a small cake mould, using half a litre of strong gelatine combined with wild bird food (5 leaves of gelatine to 500ml). Leave in the fridge overnight to set then remove from the mould and hang in your garden for the birds s to enjoy this Christmas.

    Your garden must be full of birds – such up-market dining. Great idea and I’m definitely going to try one.

#spelt #permaculture #bakingandmaking Thanks to @textilegarden I found the perfect gift for my best friend at Woolfest, like a tiny acorn our friendship has grown into big oak tree. Years of nurture has given us strong roots. Happy 40 years of frienship Ali xxx I really think poppy seed heads are far more beautiful than the poppies! A break from Woolfest photos today. 
#girlgardener #seeds #gardenersofig #mygardenrightnow Years ago, a guy I followed on twitter wrote an ebook, I reviewed it on my blog and  it became my "go to" Friday night curry book. Now he has a "real life" cook book, published. Congratulations Dan @thecurryguy it's a triumph, sorry I can't be at the New Bookshop to have my copy signed xxxx
