Violets for Violet

A few weeks ago a nice lady called Kate got in touch to tell us of her little girl's mission. A mission to quite literally find a packet of seeds with her name on them.

Violet's Mum bought box after box of smoothies, but ended up with piles of every other kind of seed. At one point Violet even considered changing her name to Basil.

That's where we decided to step in and help.


Today, amongst a pile of boring brown and white envelopes, we noticed something that looked a bit special.

Turns out it was a little thankyou letter from Violet, complete with her very own trademark flower doodle.

Today we launched our Fruit Sports Day website. Lovingly hand drawn by Kirsty using our favourite (now discontinued) Karisma pencils.

It's fair to say Kirsty probably drew a football pitch worth of grass over the last few weeks and here's all that's left of her beloved green pencil. We're now on the look out for another brand of pencils to fall in love with. Suggestions welcome in the comments below.
