Flowerpot Woman

Well not quite! It is mentioned on the most recent edition of Flavour, the food and drink radio show I started in Cambridge six years ago. The show started out on 209radio which became Cambridge105.

I’m still chuffed to hear the theme tune I chose (Plantation Inn by the Markeys. fact fans) being used as intro and outro to this hour long show which is aired every fortnight and available as podcast from www.cambridge105.fm.

Long live community radio! Here’s a link to the show mentioning my collaboration with Ann Proctor http://cambridge105.fm/podcasts/flavour-27-07-2013/

The book also got a mention on Radio Newcastle yesterday plus there was an article in local paper, The Journal.

Here’s a link http://www.thejournal.co.uk/news/north-east-news/little-seeds-creative-thinking-big-5581311 and yes I look a little like Bill and Ben the flowerpot men.

The article brought allotment owner Colleen down to Tynemouth market to buy a copy and get it signed by Anne, bookbinder Jennifer Copping and myself. How delightful to connect with someone who also shares Anne and I’s view that allotments are Rectangles of Hope. More power to your spade, Colleen.

Anne and I are working on our next book and are both excited by it. The working title is Swifts Screech & Circle in the Afternoon Sun. Watch this space
