Silly Billy

Oh how I love creative collaborations! Following Judy’s comment last Saturday we have been chatting behind the scenes and I’m excited to show you how we have joined together for this week’s Silly Saturday – shell and coral picture by me and poem by Judy.

Silly Billy

 

Oh, how I love to be free

Doing whatever suits me

Prancing and dancing around

Playing with treasures I’ve found

 

I can go wherever I please

Skipping along in the breeze

Just one thing missing in my life

I need to find me a wife

 

poem by Judy E Martin

of Edwina’s Episodes

~~~~~~

I first met Eddie (I call her Eddie as at first I did not know her real name) via Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge a few years ago. I love her look on life and her poems always bring a smile and sometimes a nod and a wink! Judy has produced a wonderful book of her poems: “Rhymes of the Times”  . You can also see her reading her poems on You Tube. There is always a touch of humour and the last lines of her poems often bring a surprise that have me laughing out loud.

I was lucky enough to be able to meet Eddie and the lovely Mr. Grump back in March 2016. (click the link to see a photo of us together)

I absolutely LOVE working creatively with others, bouncing ideas around and coming up with something that brings different ways of looking at things together – this has been FUN! Thank you SO much Eddie. ❤

Maybe we will do it again sometime – I hope so!

She danced onto the table whilst I was harvesting Rocket seeds …………. and for more inspirational flower pictures go to Elsa Mora’s site, or Google images, she has even produced a book of Blossom Buddies.

I wish I could remember where this quote came from, I think it might be one of  Tich Naht Hanh’s

Silly Seaweedy Saturday

DSC_0499

This little chap was made by my son-in-law.

I have recently returned for a week’s holiday in Solva, with my daughter A, M and their 3 children.

Wales is always wet and windy, but we did have a glorious time with masses of sunshine, days on the beach building sand dragons and rock-pooling, wild walks, meeting up with family and friends, and relaxing in the evenings with a glass of wine – and seaweed.DSC_0512 (1)

A Wild Food Foraging walk with Julia of Wild About Pembrokeshire, gave us the information that all seaweed in the UK is edible, so long as it is still growing on the rocks. So I gathered some, washed it and marinated it in SoySauce, piri piri, black pepper and lime juice, garnished with edible honeysuckle florets.

The seaweed was crunchy and delicious to nibble with a glass of Pinot Grigio or a tasty Malbec. Go on try some!

I don’t know

You tell me

I’m all of a fluster

Where can they be
