Don't Call Me "Mother"

The girls have been watching #Tangled lately. Can you tell? The love acting out the story of Rapunzel. That’s one reason I asked them not to call me “mother”; sounds too formal and too much like what Rapunzel called her…

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 !
