Recipe by Derf

This has been great fun gathering all the stuff, now I am patiently waiting "a few weeks", it should be ready for Christmas. I will place it in among the plants inside our front door entrance, hoping the scent will welcome visitors. Comes out of our local tourism magazine "Okanagan life".
