200th Post and a Giveaway

Can't believe I have done 200 posts.
To celebrate the occasion I am having a giveaway.
All you have to do is leave a comment on this page and this sweet heart garland could be yours.
I will draw a winner on the night of 19th May (Australian time)

Love Autumn

Love looking at the colours of the leaves on the Silver Birch trees at the end of this garden.
Amazing that these 3 silver birch still have their leaves but the 5 out the front garden have none left.

Beautiful raindrops on the camellia blooms this morning

Love the colour of the flowers on the camellias in this hedge
Thanks to everyone on their lovely comments over the time we had Riley staying with us.
Hope it didn't bore you too much
Don't forget to leave a comment to be in the giveaway

Congratulations on 300 - wasn't that the name of a film about Sparta with that dishy fella?
Your previous post made me miss my son - he is only upstairs in bed! However, I was more thinking of when he goes to stay with his Dad, at those times I so long to hold his little hand and know that he is near.

Hi Alison,
I also found you through Sandy's place - after reading about Sandy hosting the Fun Day at Bonogin next Sunday and then reading your comment that you have family members living in the area I couldn't help but think what a small world it is....I live very close to your Niece and Sister in Law....

Hi Alison ~ congrats on your 200th post! Thank you so much for visiting my blog the other day! I love meeting people from Australia! It holds a very fond place in my heart and I spent a lot of time there some years back...three years of time to be exact on three separate trips just bumming around the country! I just adore it there and I know exactly (well, not your exact address!) where you live! Keep up the lovely work on your blog. I will visit often! ~Stacy~

Fabulous give-away and please enter me if you are shipping here. Love your camellias. Mom has some that bloom at Christmas time. It seems strange when it's bleak and cold and all the leaves have fallen, that she has pretty pink blossoms in her gardens.

Oh your garden looks so pretty! I know what you mean about fall, I love the season, but get sad saying goodbye to my garden time! I spent to much time in the gardens today and became fairly ill! I do this too often! Love to you, Lori
