1,101 posts

According to my dashboard, this is my 1,101st post. It calls for a blog giveaway. Not to be mysterious, but I haven't decided on the item yet, so if you trust me, do leave a comment, making sure that I can contact you if you're the winner. The draw will be on Friday, June 12.

My lemon balm plant, the first of my little herb garden for my balcony. I use it in salads, along with other fresh herbs, and it's also a good sleep promoter. I just hope the birds don't like it too...


  1. I love lemon balm; I had it in my garden and it came back and came back ... and then it didn't. Sigh.

  2. Colette,

    ...who's a popular girl then!!!...I couldn't believe the amount of comments I had to read today!...Didn't realise you had so many followers.It would be good if people left comments on a regular basis, that way you know your work is being appreciated.

    I am struggling with Internet explorer at the moment, so I am crossing my fingers that I can leave a comment.

    I don't need to be entered into the giveaway...I am surrounded with your beautiful artwork already.
