Popped down to the Martineau Gardens over the weekend to see the Beekeepers of Birmingham’s Honey Show.
I met John Gale, the Honey Show Manager who was kind enough to explain to me the goings on. Thanks for the shot of mead ;0)

Went to a local brum treat of a festival. The Kings Norton Festival. There was music and there were vendors but I was particularly drawn to the canal where a different easy Sunday morning vibe was in full swing. Got to chatting to the traders on the canal. Quite the alternative lifestyle requiring the paradox that is being very organised and industrious as well as being easy going. A life of travel and constant change!
The lovely Helen of Wildside Preserves gave us a jar of her award winning Strawberry & Raspberry jam with Raspbery Gin, yum! It was cool having a bit of banter with these awesome tradespeople who float about from town to town selling their wares. CHECK OUT THE VIDEO!!
The Northfield Arts Carnival was yesterday. Lots of fun to be had! here are some highlights from my trusty iphone.
I was fortunate enough to have some of my artwork used by the Northfield Arts Forum for their Arts Village. Check out their website here https://artsforumnorthfield.wordpress.com/events/
Today was a lot of fun, we went to Walsall’s Annual Music Festival, Bands on the Beacon.
Tired from camping Shennanigans, and with a poor weather outlook it looked like we might just stay indoors. Somehow we managed to get our togs on and venture forth! We were pleasantly surprised by the Sun popping out and arriving a festival in full swing! Oh and did I mention Nashe got to hang out with the Sherlocks who gave him his first set of Drumsticks!! Legends. check out their music here http://thesherlocksmusic.co.uk/
Two little Toddlers had their first ever camping experience in the back garden this weekend. One loved it, the other didn’t much rate the darkness… but suffice to say fun ensued. Great to have the grandparents pitching in too ( pun intended)
Today we made a mini- camp fire in the garden. It was Nash & Zori’s first time trying toasted marshmallows and chocolate bananas. I think fun was had :o)
