Winner Of The Giveaway Is...

I published my first post on March 9, 2008 and today, one year later, is my 285th post! It's been a great year of blogging and meeting many, many wonderful new friends.

Thank you all for the interest in my giveaway over the last few weeks. I wish I had a big old stack of paintings to mail out this week to each one of you who were so kind to comment and enter. I am pleased to announce that the winner is Danette, of Hand Knits That Blossom! If you have never visited Danette you simply must! She creates the most remarkable, beautiful knitted creations! Danette, I promise to get your watercolor off in the mail to you shortly. Here's a preview:

I love foxglove and hummingbirds always remind me of my parents home in Tennessee. So when I saw a picture of a hummingbird enjoying the nectar from foxglove in a book called Birds In My Garden by Sherry Nelson, I decided to do a watercolor like it as a gift for my blog anniversary. I hope you like it, Danette!

What a beautiful watercolor! I love foxglove so much and planted it in my English garden at the lake last summer. I so hope it made it through this killer winter!
