...and the winner is

Jackie wins my gently read copy of
"Orange Mint & Honey "
Jackie I've sent you an email
it was so nice on Saturday..
I made sweet tea with mint from the
garden ...slept in the hammock after
browsing Romantic Homes..and
listened to music.
Planted some sunflower seeds and
relaxed. Saw my MR Hummingbird friend
and my turkey known as Henny Penny
since our wren is Jenny Wren..
what a joyous day.
love to you all
