Quack quack we have a winner!

I am pleased to announce that Julie at Frog Pond Farm  has won the duck finger puppets from my giveaway.


 I am waiting to get her address and then will post them off to her lovely farm in New Zealand.  If you haven't visited her blog yet, please do, as she has the most gorgeous photos of the most exquisite farm life that she lives.   My grandson pulled her name out of an envelope and then we went to look at the blog to see who had won.  "Oh she has sheep, and a lovely black cat!"  Her awesome vegetable patch didnt get any recognition at all.  The grands came around with some corn seeds and we put a few into the ground, using their brand new kiddie sized tools.  I had a bucket of compost that had filled with rainwater and got rather stinky so little miss 4 was horrified with the smell, and didnt stay outside for long.  Mr 7 is a true gardener at heart, and was carefully measuring how deep the seeds were planted, and asking how long it would be until they popped up, how long until we tasted our first corn etc.
The lipstick plant is loving this hot wet weather,
 In fact there is quite a bit of colour in the garden at the moment, now that the rain has slowed down a bit.
Mmm I might have to start thinking about what I am going to plant next in the veggie patch.

    1. Sami,
      Yes it is fun to pass on the love of gardening. I am always excited to see spots of red appearing in that section of the garden.

    1. In actual fact it is too dry - we need to have some rain. There is plenty of humidity though. Not my favourite time of year weatherwise.
