Sunflowers and A Winner!



Just back from a delightful couple of days with friends in Todi. Their house on the Umbrian hillside is surrounded by sunflowers. Something about sunflowers reminds me of people - happy people. These remind me of all the delightful people who support this blog with loyal and encouraging comments.

Today's the day I announce the winner of my Blog Birthday watercolour giveaway.



And the winner is........






Oh dear, I've mucked up the cut and paste of the number generator so please trust me when I say it was No.6 - and that means the winner is Dominique Eichi of Dancing Strokes. I'm about to send you an email requesting your snail mail address, Dominique and then I will send off your watercolour.

Thank you all so much for your greetings - and I'm so thankful it wasn't Dermott's number that came up!

Sunflowers do have a special magic, don't they? Your watercolor is beautiful! I'd love to hear a blog post about how you came to live there!

Congratulations, Dominique!

Robyn, the sunflowers are gorgeous. Your friends are so lucky to be surrounded by them. They must get flocks of birds, too.

Dermott said...

Meh. You assume I'd want it. I've seen better on tea towels.

Dermott, that smacks of sour Chewy Chumstix to me - we all wanted that watercolour - congratulations to Dominique! Try being more like a sunflower Dermott:)

Dermott said...

Triffids are more my go, Cathy.

Sunflowers, especially huge fields of them like this, amaze me. The flower heads are beautiful. But you know I've never drawn or painted one? I must remedy that.

Congratulations Dominique, you're so lucky to have one of Robyn's pieces!

Sunflowers DO look like crowds of people smiling in the sun, don't they?! I remember miles of them in Italy. Lovely!
