Refresh Your Garden Design Winner and New Contest

And the winner of the Fiskars loppers and hoe is "BooksandGarden".  I've notified her by email so she can claim her prizes.

Many thanks to the hostess of the virtual book party, Rebecca Sweet, for arranging all the prizes and blogger guests. I was honored to be included.

I am truly enjoying Rebecca's new book, Refresh Your Garden Design with Color, Texture, & Form.  It is inspiring me to finish out the areas of the garden that I haven't quite gotten around to planting yet. 

I long for the day when I can take a visitor around my garden and not have to say, "I still need to add plants to this border". This book is helping me to see how I can do that.

In fact...

I am so smitten with this book that I've decided to do my own giveaway -- one copy of Refresh Your Garden with Color, Texture, & Form.  If you'd like to win a copy of this book, just leave a comment by Wednesday, November 13, 2013 at 11:13 pm EST and include a link or disguised email address so I can reach you.  Winner will be chosen by random drawing.

I'll have Amazon ship the book directly to you, so you'll have to give me an address if you are the winner.  Open to residents of the U.S., 18 and over, etc.

P.S. -  Rebecca is one of the nicest people you will ever meet and she will protest that I didn't need to do this, but we'll just not pay attention to her. She's in California, I'm in Indiana.  We aren't likely to see each other in person for quite some time. Besides, I want to Garden It Forward!

Update: The lucky winner is 5 and the commenter is Cindy, MCOK! Congrats, Cindy and I'll be contacting you soon to send you this book.

  15. I love to garden and I am a sucker for garden books. My husband makes fun of me when he sees all the bookmarks and marked pages I have in my garden books for ideas. I did finally give up marking pages and made a list in the front of the book! Otherwise they end up looking like porcupines with tons of markers sticking out.

    Please, enter me for the book - win(at)earthformed(dot)com

    Thanks

  29. Thank you - so sweet! I would love this because since moving into our house, I have not done a thing with the yard and my neighbor has a paradise in her yard! Humiliating
