A giveaway winner

My little peach tree has started flowering

We have a winner for the giveaway, wish I could give you all something... many thanks for the kind visits to my blog,
I wrote down all the names and put them in a hat and got my husband to pick out a name - the name that he pulled out of the hat is Happy Sonne ~ Yvonne please email me your postal address and I will get the book in the mail to you.

With my brother and sister, we visited five rest homes and one was really lovely,  nice comfortable room,  and the staff were really kind and friendly.
So hopefully on Monday we will be able to finalize  all the arrangements and get Mum into her new home. 

Do hope that you have had a lovely week and now I wish you a happy weekend


  1. Congrats to the winner. I do hope your Mum settles in and you are happy with her care.

  2. Congratulatins to Maecel who hade birthday. And congratulations to Yvonne who won the lovely book.

    Ah, Spring is in the air on your side of the globe and although our temps have been in the 80s and 90s the morning air tells me fall is around the corner!

  6. Ciao cara Carlyn,
    con immenso piacere passo a salutarti, a guardare ed ammirare il tuo blog ed a ringraziarti per la bellissima fotografia d questa orchidea che rispecchia la bellezza del tuo blog!

  7. Dearest Carolyn,

    That is quite a change for your Mum, moving to a new home. A lot of acceptance has been 'forced' upon her in the last half year or so. Not easy but I pray that she's healed well and adjusts to her new surroundings and finds peace.
    Hugs to you and congrats to Yvonne!

  8. Happy weekend darling.....congratulations to the winner !! and good luck with your mom's new

  9. Hello, dear Carolyn,
