Pay It Forward - Who's Getting a Package from Redondo Beach?

Thank you all so much for the kind comments you left on the Pay It Forward post, I really appreciate your time! I finally put the names of everyone who said "I'm in" in the drawing this afternoon. As soon as my son got home from school, I asked him to draw the name of the lucky recipient for me. And...the winner is:

Mary of Mitten Machen Blog! CONGRATULATIONS, Mary!!! Please email me your address and a package from Redondo Beach, California will head your way early next week.

Remember, the idea is that once you receive the package, you should find someone to 'Pay It Forward' to!
**************************

I would like to share with you some photos from my garden as I haven't had anything much to share lately. Hope you will enjoy them:)




My roses are so big and healthy, my husband has been taking very good care of them.



I forgot the name of these beautiful flowers, I have a lot of them this spring.



The only one cherry tomato I have left from last summer! Can you see the yellow buds?

All my herb plants died from the rain storm last month, this is the only one that survived.


This is my "Owari Satsuma Mandarin" tree. It's looking great, isn't it? The flowers are blooming and they smell so sweet and wonderful!
Hopefully, I will be back with more photos of my garden very soon:)

  8. Your flowers are lovely and your fruit and herbs a great promise of good eats. I'm glad you like the Egg Salad on a Nest idea at Reading, Writing, and Recipes. You could use a veggie salad instead of egg salad. Let me know if you son goes for it.
