Small-scale foraging

I just collected at least 956544285878 poppy seeds, and in the process of doing so made a lovely arrangement of seedheads in a vase. During the activity I only found one spider, one caterpillar and one earwig (which is still on the loose somewhere in my flat)! I realised afterwards I should probably have left the seeds in their cases for a few more days to make sure they were properly dried out, but you live and learn.

I now have plans to collect Honesty seeds (more dried flower arrangements - I am turning into my mother! But that's OK) and Himalayan Balsam. I want to get experimental with my biscuit and bread making! :)

  1. Mmmm cake mix.
    You reminded me to make a wholemeal honey cake (off to parents tomorrow so don't need to eat it all myself).
    Also need to pull up the poppies that keep growing in my garden :(
    Hope your bread is better than my first two attempts.
