Party Time

We celebrated the arrival of the 2012 Brown Envelope Seeds catalogue and calendar at the opening of Sonia Caldwell's exhibition of paintings last night ( Friday 11th of November) at the Riverside Cafe in Skibbereen. The exhibition was opened by horticulturist Kitty Scully of RTE's 'How to create a garden'. We made it our Christmas party and stayed on for a delicious meal. Thanks to all at the Riverside that made it a great evening. Both the calendar and catalogue are illustrated with Sonia's watercolours of vegetables and their flowers. The calendar is available directly from Soniasoniacaldwell@eircom.net, and the catalogue is available from seeds@brownenvelopeseeeds.com and the seeds are available from www.brownenvelopeseeds.com

Good luck with the calendar collaboration with Sonia - a perfect cross-pollination! It's a gorgeous production and an ideal gift and I see Avoca are stocking them aswell. Thanks again, Kitty
