It's all free

Did you know all the competitions I post about are free to enter? Well, they are. Even this one to win books and champagne.

I have books I could photograph, but no champagne, so I'm not going to bother taking the lens cap off the camera. Instead, here's a picture of some daisy type things that I took previously. The plant has a name but I can't remember what it is.

Hi Patsy,

Many thanks for posting, much as I love books (what writer doesn't) I'd love the champagne. I've got the taste for it since my friends started hitting 'big' birthday numbers.

I'm approaching one myself early in 2012 so I'm up for entering...

Looks like Feverfew to me, Patsy!

I was going to say ox-eye daisies but it could well be feverfew!!

Patsy said...

Feverfew, that's the stuff. Golden feverfew, as that's the only type I grow. Gold is the colour of champagne - so cheers!

Sarah Pearson said...

Those flowers are pretty :)

Am I the only one who doesn't like champagne?

joanne fox said...

Feverfew, yes. I don't like champagne either Sarah, but books are always good. Thanks Patsy for the info.

WRITING CONTEST.....My blog Amish Stories is having its first ever contest this week. The First prize winner will win 2 tickets to tour the farm where the 1985 move "Witness" staring Harrison Ford and Kelly Mcgillis was made in Strasburg,Pa . This farm is now Amish owned, and the family has given permission for folks to tour their farm. This may be the last time anyone will be able to walk and see the same things that Harrison Ford and the other actors saw during the making of "Witness". The Witness tour should last about 2.5 hours. In addition to the Witness farm tour tickets, 1st prize winner will also receive 2 tickets for Jacobs choice. There will also be a 2nd place prize, which will be 2 tickets for the Amish Homestead. Please go to My blog www.AmishStorys.com for contest details, and more information on the prizes. Richard from the Amish settlement of Lebanon county.

Richard, is your competition open to all nationalities?

Patsy said...

Sarah and Joanne, I'm sure there are others who don't like champagne - probably just as well as there's only a limited amount of space to produce the stuff.

Two of my favourite things! Thank you! Have just found your blog through Sally Jenkins one - nice little bonus of a free comp - thank you again!

Isn't feverfew supposed to be good for curing migraines? What do you have to do with it...eat it? Make a brew? Smoke it?!!!

Patsy said...

Welcome, Mel. If you like free comps stick around - there'll be more.

Yes, Seaview, it is good for migraines - both cure and as a preventitive. You can eat it fresh, or make tea. It's very bitter though, so you might want to disguise the flavour.
