And The Winner Is ...

Firstly - thank you for all the comments (all 4 of them!) So I went to and chose the List Randomizer and entered your names. Soooo ...
the winner is Coreen! I will post off a parcel to you in the next few days - it will be a surprise!
BUT seeing as there are only 4 comments Po-mo, RubySlippers and Rhonz will get a little thank you something too.
Rhonz please contact me through the profile (email address will be up for just a few days) with your address.
I'll see Po-mo and RubySlippers before long :-)

Now, the photo. It was taken at Queen Hatshepsut's Temple at Deir el Bahri, this year. I thought the mounds were wheat (or grain) but I'm pretty sure our guide said it was incense!

More About the Giveaway

OK, just a few more hours to go for your comments to be posted on the previous post - love the comments that are there! It isn't to see if you are correct or not - it's YOUR interpretation of the photo - Rubyslippers seems to be very knowledgeable, in fact I'm gobsmacked by the information! I know what I thought it was, which is different than what I was told it was (do you understand what I mean here?).
Have fun.
Let you know who the winner is tomorrow.

A Celebration to You

I have just about had 5000 visitors to this blog - that is so amazing! So as a thank you to all you visitors, I'm going to put together a little thank you parcel for some lucky person.
BUT, as I suspect many of you are lurkers, you have to leave a comment on this post. This isn't for just anyone, this is for you, my regular visitors - this is my way of saying thank you for keeping in touch.
So, take a look at this photo - it's from my holiday this year.
Leave a comment on this post about the photo - tell me what you think is happening here (or was), how old it is, the colour of the paint used - anything, so long as it's related to what you see here.
You must do this by midnight 20th October 2009 (NZDT).
A lucky winner will be drawn out by
What's going to be in the prize? - I'm still working on that - something to do with the land ('cause I have a lifestyle block), something New Zealand and probably something to do with quilting. There you go - pretty airy fairy I know!
Good luck!

I'm Not Sure What's Going On!?

The egg on the left is from one of my young Blue Andalusian's, the one in the middle is from a Bantam, but that one on the right?
I've had some strange eggs this year: a long pointy one that was a double yolker, a couple without hard shells (they have a supply of oyster grit) and another small one which measured 35mm, but this is almost half of that!
Oh well!
