We're 2 weeks in to my open garden season, so it's time for another random prize draw. The total raised stands at a magnificent £618 - thanks to everyone who's contributed this week. We're pretty close to a significant milestone which I'm confident I'll be able to tell you about during the next few days. I've also been promised a couple of exciting new prizes - more on that later :)
As you may have guessed, I've pulled a prize from my magnificent book stash out of the hat today.
And the winner is...Louise. You've won The Bird Book - the link takes you to its entry on Amazon, so you can get a preview of what you'll be getting. I love the artwork, and I hope it'll add to the lovely posts on the birds you've seen in your garden over at This is My Patch. This book was donated by Jane Perrone (via The Garden Monkey), so my thanks must also go to her for making this possible. Louise - we have family coming down for the weekend, so I'll be in touch early next week to arrange getting your prize to you. Hope that's OK.
Tune in next week for another great giveaway for my garden donors - I may ring the changes with a wizard wheeze. In the meantime, hop on over to my garden and donate, if you haven't done so already!
PS - went to Jekka McVicar's open day at her Herb Farm today. I had a fab time, which Emmat has described so well over at Baklava Shed Coalition - complete with a sneaky mobile phone photo of my lower torso, the minx ;) It was lovely to meet Emma and we chatted away like mad. As you can see from the above photo, Jekka has happily donated a signed copy of her Complete Herb Book to the cause. She was delighted to meet the mysterious VP and to sign my newly bought copy of her book!
