Loving those apples!

We were excited to see that after we posted about the love of Discovery Apples, and that we had heard that they were coming out early this year..we passed the local green grocers and look what we found! It seems that they love them as much as we do.
Better than those 'too perfect' ones the super markets like to sell. 
These aren't Discovery Apples, but we just wanted to share the wonderful star that we found inside them! Hope you are enjoying this great bumper crop of English apples like we are! 


Apples are coming early!

We have just heard on the news that English Apples are out early this year. We thought that would be a problem, but the reporter seemed to think that it was a good thing as we would be able to eat English Apples from August to May next year! That sounds great to us. Our favourite is the Discovery Apple which has a very short  lifespan, but that makes it all the more treasured. 

And we heard that there is a 40% increase in English Apples being sold in supermarkets since 2009! Fantastic! 


Amazing bird boxes

These incredible bird houses have been made and photographed by the group calling themselves London Field Works. Click here to see more of them. We haven't seen these in situ yet, but we really want to. This is how London Field works describe what they do:

London Fieldworks was formed in 2000 by artists Bruce Gilchrist and Jo Joelson as an umbrella organisation for creative research and collaboration at the art, science and technology intersection. Typically, their projects engage with the notion of ecology as a complex inter-working of social, natural, and technological worlds.

The beauty of sand

We have been away working for a couple of weeks and thought that we would have time to blog, but alas we had no time at all! But now that we are back we wanted to share this wonderful research with you. The photo above is of sand photographed 250 times its normal size by Professor Gary Greenberg from the University College of London. You can visit his website by clicking here

We never imagined that you would be sitting or walking on all of these amazing things on the beach! How wonderful the world is!

Such tiny little creatures!
