It’s been a few weeks since I last wrote a weekend links post – apologies, it’s been a busy old time with viewing on our house.  Sadly no sale yet.  It’s my first time selling and after six months of the house being on the market I’m finding it incredibly frustrating, but trying to remain hopeful!  Hope you’ve all had good weeks!

Thanks to all of your amazing help this week, Moral Fibres is currently marginally in the lead in the best eco blog category!  Thank you so so much!  If you haven’t voted then please do – I’d really appreciate your help!  You’ve got until 31st March to cast your vote, here.

This complex carbohydrates cartoon by illustrator Gemma Correll really made me giggle.

I’m keen to get out in the garden planting.  If you are too, here’s one from the Moral Fibres archives on what to sow in your garden in March.  We’ve decided to grow everything in pots this year so we can move our veggies if we ever do manage to move house this year!

Paris makes a bold move and bans 50% of cars on the road.  I can’t imagine this ever happening in the UK!

In response to severe drought, these Californian salmon are being transported to breeding grounds by truck.

Wrapping paper impregnated with seeds – what an extra special touch to any gift.

Have a lovely weekend folks – see you next week!
