I sure have had a string of good luck lately. In a matter of about 2 weeks I won not one, but four giveaways! I've signed up for many giveaways over the past two years of blogging and have won a couple. But imagine my surprise and excitement when it seemed like every time I checked back to see who the winner was I saw my name.
First it was the $100 Proven Winners giveaway on Heather's blog Dusty Bay. I'll be sure to post pictures of the plants when they arrive. Heather has a great blog and is another Pacific Northwesterner and lives up in Canada. Take a visit to see her beautiful flower and plant posts. Lots of great plant information there.
A Southern Garden by Becca. Becca is in Alabama and I love seeing how different it is down there. She is a very good hearted person and always has something kind to say. She also has the cutest dog Buddy who is her garden buddy. Becca was having a blogaversary giveaway and look at all the things she sent. I'm totally hooked on the butter pecan coffee, the smell is unbelievable. Just opening the box the scent of butter pecan started making me hungry. Now I have to figure out how I will get more of it :)
Next, I found out I won Linda's giveaway on Gardening by Trial and Error. Linda is hilarious in both her blog and her comments. I was so lucky to get to meet her last year when she drove all the way up from southern Washington to my house. She came loaded with plants and seeds to share. I'm waiting to see how the Siberian irises look when they bloom this year. We like comparing what's blooming in each others gardens during the year since we are in the same state yet about 3 hours driving distance from each other.
Dirt Therapy that I won a book from his giveaway. Phillip is also from Alabama and has a beautiful gardens that he shares with his fantastic photography. He also shares delicious sounding recipes with pictures of the final product. I only wish I enjoyed cooking as much as gardening.
Even though I've only met Linda in person, I feel a real connection to my fellow garden bloggers. Some I've gotten to know a little more through comments on each others blogs, emails and Facebook. There are so many good and generous people out there in the gardening world, I feel privileged to have gotten to know so many and be able to count them as friends.
Today I'm heading to the Northwest Perennial Alliance plant sale and am hoping to meet up with Alison of Bonney Lassie.
Oh, yeah and one more good thing... today is the first day of Spring!!
