the winner takes it all...

Well the flower pot never lies and I am delighted to announce that our winner is.....


YES! I shall be in touch Mr Flighty and your prize shall be on it's way to you (with best wishes) tomorrow morning. Though it is Royal Mail so goodness knows when you'll receive it, haha.

My blog's birthday is on the 10th which is Sunday but I promise to do a wee retrospective either on that day or Monday :) I hope you shall all be standing by a freshly baked cake on Sunday though, at around 2pm, the time I hit 'publish' for the very first time.

***************

Apart from that joy with Flighty as our winner I just have a few photos of the back garden I would love to put here for prosperity. It is really taking shape with all this sun and heavy showers and feels a little like all this growing won't know when to stop and one day we won't be able to get the patio windows :)

I have a thing for the colours and textures of new growth on already established plants, please indulge me...

I just love these bronzes, lime greens and reds

And here is a wee quick overview, I just love the time of year when the stained glass window is covered in the creeper, love all the bright red top growth on the maple and oohhh, Andrew pruned the bamboo in the tea garden into the traditional Japanese shape :)


Love and hugs my friends

    1. CJ you couldn't be sweeter! I do think he is a worthy winner myself :) I adore what Andrew has done to the bamboo, it's just how we saw them in Japanese gardens by the temples. Hope your weekend is better (and much drier than ours!) xx
