Ta - Da!

My Easter gnome in the shape of himself has picked a winner at random with his eyes closed tight, so winging its way soon to Janet at 'Plantaliscious' will be a copy of Val Bourne's ''The Natural Gardener'. As it's Easter I would like to send two little consolation prizes, to Cathy over at 'Rambling In The Garden' and to Annie over at 'Annie's Little Plot'  - not choccies I'm afraid but something suitably seasonal.

Please email me at so that I can do the doings. Many thanks to everybody else who entered. In the meantime wishing anybody who calls by a most happy and joyous Easter.

The above illustration is by Margaret Tarrant, 1888 -1959.


  1. Your picture triggered all sorts of childhood memories, Anna, and then I read the bit underneath- what a nice surprise! Thank you so much - I shall be emailing you soon :)

  2. Congratulations to Janet, and also to Cathy and Annie. It looks like a super book so I'm sure Janet will enjoy reading it. What a lovely illustration, it reminds me of a Ladybird book I used to have as a child about a rabbit which escaped from it's hutch and went to live with the other animals in the wild, I can't remember what it was called now.

  3. Ooh how exciting, thanks Anna, I'll send you an email. Hope you had a Happy Easter xx

  4. Aww, that's brilliant! I love reading Janet's blog and her comments always give me a lot of pleasure - a true internet friend! I'm really pleased that she's got a lovely book on it's way to her, a very deserving recipient! It seems you've brought a little Easter magic to three lucky readers, Anna. Fantastic! C x

  5. I hope your Easter Gnome was suitably dressed for the occasion! Hope you had an enjoyable Easter - at least the sun came out for some of the time

  6. Oh wow, but I never win things, how wonderful! Am off to email you...


All your comments are much appreciated and treasured. I wil try to reply to everyone who leaves a comment, but it may take me a few days, especially when I start spending more time in the garden and at the lottie. I know that you will understand :) I am sure that I will also visit your blog if I have not already done so. If you have any specific questions I will either reply to them here or you can email me at :
