Please visit me in my garden, among the flowers and weeds, as I carve out a little patch of heaven in this rainy Pacific Northwest. I hope to share with you some of the joys, the triumphs, the techniques I learn along the way, and maybe some favourite garden recipes and art projects, too.

The project was started by Ola Helland, as a bet with his friend Jorgen, that he would be able to collect one million images of hand made or hand drawn giraffes. That was a lofty challenge, and one which I was happy to lend my assistance, as did many people in 102 countries. I am happy to hear the Ola has recently reached his goal of one million giraffes, after 440 days of collecting giraffes. The web site One Million Giraffes continues to collect more giraffes - so if you missed being part of the first million, there is still a chance to submit your photos, perhaps toward the next million giraffes! A nice coffee table book (a sort of Where's Waldo? of giraffe images) containing most of the one million giraffes has emerged as a result of the project.
The book is available from Amazon.ca here or Amazon.com here, or possibly at your local bookstore. More photos and information about the book can be found here. So if you participated in the project, you can purchase the book and look for your giraffe. Or if someone is looking for something to buy me for Christmas, this is one possible idea. :-)
