And the winner of Lawn Gone is...

...Susan! Susan is taking steps to minimize her lawn and mentioned she hoped to expand herb plantings to replace the lawn. 

Can you imagine how lovely a front yard filled with German Chamomile would be? 

Thanks to everyone for entering the drawing, and I hope you will check out Pam Penick's book, Lawn Gone! (Susan, please e-mail your address to me at, and I'll send your book to you ASAP.)

And, to brighten your Monday morning, here's an update of the forsythia branches I cut and forced to bloom:

Aren't they cheerful? I highly recommend adding a few flowering branches inside--they add a touch of spring and brighten any room.

Happy Monday to you!
