Celebrating a Sweet Unlikely Carnivore


Join me as I celebrate the Round-leaved Sundew on the Bloomsbury Festival website. My 100 word centena and 400 word essay were written as part of the 26 Plants project - a collaboration between 26 and the Wildlife Trusts to highlight a selection of our plants with a story to tell.

Planting Trees


Templar Books (an imprint of Bonnier) has a lovely way of celebrating the birth of a new book. 

'Since 2020 we’ve been celebrating the publication of every new book by planting ten trees on your behalf. We are working with Reforest’Action – a certified social enterprise – and have planted over 7,000 trees across the world to date. Our latest project is centred on the Eastern Cape of South Africa.'

You can find out more about the project Kuzuko here and I am chuffed to have trees planted there in my name.

Thank you, Templar!

P.S. I'm over on An Awfully Big Blog Adventure this week.

Waiting for Me

Advance copies of Great Minds - 2500 Years of Thinkers and Philosophy* were waiting for me as I stepped back into my post-Fair Isle life. An excellent consolation!

* publication date 14 Sept. - not long now!
