My Photo


  • a happy, ordinary, middle-aged, suburban woman who paints odd pictures, gardens in a straw hat, lives with the love of her life, is owned by one cat and the ghosts of several others, and walks a little funny 'cause she has a fake leg. She started this website because there's more to life than what we lose, and we need to let each other know what's possible, even if it's only a happy, ordinary life.

Edible gravel. Available from all good Farmers' Markets. Looks like gravel and can be used as such on a short term basis so ideal for covering unsioghtly soil in the pots of those house plants you are given by visitors but allow to die through neglect over the next few weeks. Edible by cats and dogs for when you forget to feed them and they trun to the plants for nourishment. Oh, yes, you wanted detail. Average size of gravel on long axis - 18mm.


Oh, please, it's a bowl of unused gravel.


It absolutely has to be a pile of chipped chocolate eagerly awaiting it's turn to be baked into something yummy.

(I'm so sad I missed last year's contest, I would so have guessed correctly... just like everybody else)


It's a bowl of *used* gravel. Reuse/recycle and all that.


it must be ¿ a sort of kitty litter ......Yup,,that's it


I shall reveal nothing here, but thanks for playing, everyone. Tune in tomorrow, 11/22 (probably late in the day by my time, which is GMT -5), to find out who won!
