And the winner is...
Yvonne Osborne, who lives in North Yorkshire. The standard of entries was extremely high and it was a VERY difficult decision to choose a winner. Eventually the following poem was chosen and we hope you will agree that she is a deserving winner:
Yvonne Osborne wins this wooden herb wheel planter from Grange (www.grangefen.co.uk)
A wooden wheel filled with herbs is something to desire,
creeping, trailing, scented plants able to inspire.
A culinary effort beyond my wildest dreams,
but how to choose from so many not as easy as it seems.
Parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, chamomile or sorrel,
lemon balm, sweet lavender, wild rocket, mace or chervil.
These herbs are so desirable to fill that wheel of wood,
so pretty and sweet-smelling, Id win this if you would
read my words with sympathy, with kindness and goodwill,
a wheel of herbs for my garden with beauty to instil
The wooden herb wheel is on its way to Yvonne, where she will be able to fill it with the herbs of her choice.
