And The Winner Is? ................


The gardening glove made its journey into the plant pot and emerged clutching ~ roll of drums ~ fanfare of trumpets ~ keeping you all in suspenders here ~ a piece of paper bearing the name of 'The Patient Gardener', who will soon find 'The Wonderful Weekend' winging its way to her. Thanks to all of you who entered. I only wish that there had been enough copies for all of you.

  1. Hi Anna,

    Congrats to Helen, I hope she enjoys reading the book :)

    Very clever questions... I honestly probably wouldn't have got a single one. Just not very good at riddles.
