PPP5•live on Wednesday 14th March


On Wednesday 14th March 2012 Purple Podded Peas will be five years old . . . that's a whole lot of words and pictures and your lovely comments that deserve to be celebrated in some way.

So I thought I'd do a 'live' blogging event through the day . . . the final itinerary for the day will be posted here on the blog before the big day, but this is the rough plan . . .

a weather forecast from the studio assistants
a give-away with prizes for 5 lucky winners
a chat with Lesley Dolphin live on her afternoon show 'All about Suffolk' on BBC Radio Suffolk
a tour of the vegetable garden
a walk in The Wild Wood with the under-gardeners
iPhone sketching Q&A


I'll be posting special PPP5•live blog-posts throughout the day and answering your comments, so you can pop over and join in the celebrations . . . the more the merrier!

How's this going to work? Your guess is as good as mine – I'll be making it up as we go along!

  1. A happy blog anniversary to you! We never did sketch on our iPads when I visited. Am much looking forward to seeing what you are doing with that! All celebratory activities look appropriately fun and festive.

  2. We didn't! I've a revived enthusiasm for sketching on my iPhone after seeing the Hockney exhibition (and I would love an iPad!)
    But, I have just bought a new geeky accessory for sketching using Brushes or Vellum... so I'll be practicing my iPhone sketching skills ready for Wednesday.

  15. Well done! It's my five year anniversary in November but I doubt I'll manage anything as swish as you (due to being a bit of a Luddite/ iThing widow). I think we're in the minority of bloggers who keep going longer than six months. It all sounds very exciting anyway!

  16. Celia, I send you lots of happy fifth anniversary wishes to you.

    Because of the difference in our time zones, I just might be able to get over here on That Day before I head out for my work day.

I love reading all the comments (except for spam and advertising which I will delete) and I'll reply here in the comments under each blog post, it may take a few days if I'm busy.
You don't need to have a blog to leave a comment, you can select the name/URL option and fill in just your name instead of a blog link.
And, I've turned off that annoying word verification malarkey, to make it easy for you :-)
