The kindness of others


A few weeks ago I had some great responses to this post about sourcing lavender locally. Linda from Two Pink Possums very generously offered to post me some lavender from her garden in Tassie, it arrived this week bundled together and tied with string ready to be hung to dry. Thank you Linda, your generosity will only bring good things your way I'm sure ;)

I also received a very sweet blog award this week from gretchenmist.


Proximidade is described as:
'This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes for self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!' This blog award should be sent to your favorite eight bloggers and they, in turn should forward to eight of their favorites. You should include the text for Proximidade (above) in your announcement blog.
Oh, and happy Australia Day! I'm off to a picnic. How are you celebrating?
