Bird is the word: the winners!
A big thank you to everyone who entered my blogiversary giveaways. You know the cliche about wishing you could give everyone a prize? Well, it's true. Your comments were truly inspired, and even Rob Ryan (who, like me, read every single one) was "a trifle overwhelmed". So there.
I chose all the winners via a random number generator at www.random.org, and have posted the screen captures below. I was planning to do this in a far more creative way. In fact, I was hoping that Woody, the family galah, would pick the winners out of a hat. Don't laugh – one year he picked the Melbourne cup winner! But unfortunately he was having a bit of a diva moment, and when he wasn't flying at my father-in-law who was trying to film the process, he was chewing the hat. Eventually he stormed off in protest.
Anyway, I'm sure you want me to get onto the winners, so here they are (some of your forgot to include your email address, so please email me your details asap!):

Alex Monroe goody bag
Winner: 54 – Marie
"In my dream garden I would have plenty of roses, a big gooseberry bush, some nice trees, perhaps plum/cherry. Lots of herbs, all sorts of fun ones, and vegetables too. I would also have a big table where the family could sit together and dine outside on the few English evenings it's warm enough to do so! And finally a chimnea to keep us warm and burn my garden waste. And oops forgot a compost heap so I can be greener with my waste. And thanks for running these WeeBirdy!"
