And the winner is.......

Dragonfly Pond Farm




Dragonfly Pond Farm is the winning name via the pole. Mom voted too and this is the one she liked best. I want to thank all of you for voting either in the actual sidebar pole or in the comments. Cris, Lynn, Chewy, Elizabeth, Kim, Patti, Marianne, Forever Young,Honor (who gave me the idea of having a prize), Claudia, Babs, Katie Jane, Human Being, Britt-Arnhild and Mim. I hope I haven't overlooked anyone. If so let me know!!!

The surprise is this collage which I have made for you of pictures of the farm. Please feel free to download it onto your computer as a desktop picture or whatever you desire. If you prefer the previous collage you can download that one instead.

This is the best way I can think of to thank everyone who participated and the miracle of the Internet makes it possible. The whole process was such fun and it was you all out there in virtual land that made it fun. Now for the hard part. Making the sign. I wish I could carve wood as that's my favorite kind of sign. I am NOT good at lettering. But there is a ton of wood in the barn including a piece of walnut so we'll see what happens. Blessings to all, Suki

Suki, this is a lovely name. I am so glad your mother had a hand in the naming...that seems important.

I will be eager to see what you do with the sign...and how you might use that lovely piece of walnut! You never know what you might learn to do :)

Thank you for the lovely collage. I will feel so very honored to have those very special images to gaze upon whenever I wish.

Have a Very Beautiful Weekend, Suki!

Good choice.. It's the one I voted for. :) I love your collage. Thank you. I am going to print it out to be able to see and remember this time. Nice that your Mother voted. Did your brother like the choice too?

Suki, how exciting! I really like the final name ... and how even more special that your mother liked it too. Onto the sign - forward ho! It was such fun to be part of the process and see the evolution of names. Even though it wasn't my vote, I'm going to help myself to the prize ;) have a lovely weekend ...

Dragonfly Pond Farm - A very fitting name. (smile) I opened the collage photo and enjoyed a long look at each and every shot.

thanks for participating Kim. It was all such fun. Yes, mom really liked the name.

Cris, My brother doesn't seem to care one way or the other. Whatever you decide, he says.

Thanks Andrea. I think most of this happened when you were away. You have a great WE too.

Honor, you are welcome to the prize. It was your idea to have a prize and I think even to make it a photo.

Human Being, how sweet. I like to think of the farm pictures greeting you every day.

Chewy, there really are lots of dragonflies here in the fall.

Again thanks to everyone. Happy Memorial Day weekend.

Suki I hope you are fine, just wanted to tell you that my cestandrea blog has been blocked my google as a spam, (god knows why) and I'm waiting for them to check it out and to set it free again. In the meantime I post on Miss Doodle's blog:)
Have a wonderful weekend

Oh Suki, the farm has a name. I love it. Dragonfly Pond Farm.
And I LOVE the photo in the upper left hand corner of the little out building with it's reflection on the water. I hope you make this into a banner before too long.
It is lovely and peaceful. Surely something worth meditating upon.
Aren't collages fun?
thank you for the gift of this collage.
