boxes of treasure

Finally we had some sun and so came the mad rush to the sea to get that summer feeling I so love about living in Cornwall.

I discovered a new section of beach in Looe previously undiscovered by me, and what a find for beach combing.

Thousands of mother of pearl shells, drift wood and some amazing plants hanging on to the cliff face.

I also found some ellusive burdock growing which I have been searching the hedgerows for to make a brew.
After gathering some seeds to sow next year and filling my pockets with beach treasure I left a very happy girl.

My other box of treasure, stock for selling, progressing nicely.

Its surprising what you can do in a few nights instead of cleaning
and house chores although I now live in a pig sty.
I also found a treasure in the local charity shop, the best book
with the best title, you got to love those vintage publications, they're so cheesy

chutney stock also progressing, Although our home grown chili stock was a bit disappointing this year with all the rain so we had to top up our supplies with a few extra shop brought chillies too.
