although the chilly temperatures are making sure that everything blooms at the right pace....the bluebells have been held back, when a few weeks ago I thought they would explode - far too early.
Thanks for all your wonderful comments on my recent posts - I found the discussions sparked by my 'Desert Island Books' to be especially interesting.
Because 'Anne of Green Gables' seems to have touched just about everyone, I thought it would be fitting to offer a very special copy as my first giveaway prize.
I know that most of you will already have the book - but this is a collector's edition, published by Everman's Library. And you can never have too many copies of a wonderful story!
Cloth-bound and with gorgeous illustrations...
this may be one you will want to pass on to your daughter...or grand-daughter...or another special little girl (or just keep for yourself to treasure!)
It will be sent to you with my love, and with an extra gift...and a reminder of another fabulous children's tale... I love Frances Hodgson Burnett's 'The Secret Garden' (also 'A Little Princess) and this beautiful tea towel
from Kitchen Sink Dramas (great name for a teatowel company!) is printed with a snippet of that magical story. Almost too good to use!
So, as usual, all that you need to do to be included in the draw for my Spring Giveaway is to leave me a comment and tell me (if you haven't already) your Desert Island Book.
The draw will be made on Wednesday 25th April which is also Anzac Day.
Good luck - and thanks so much for reading xo
