Whew! Wow, this had been quite a week–last Monday, Rebecca Sweet and Susan Morrison’s book, “Garden Up! Smart Vertical Gardening for Small and Large Spaces” (Cool Springs Press) was released to an avalanche of attention and great press. To celebrate it, Susan, Rebecca and several other bloggers who were featured in the book banned together to form a Cyber Book Party last Monday–we blogged about “Garden Up” and offered door prizes on each of our respective blogs. To enter to win, all you had to do was leave a comment on the post. And leave comments you did! I had over 100 comments and I know the other bloggers had similar entries.
Readers of J. Peterson Garden Design were offered the chance to win a $75.00 gift certificate from High Country Gardens, an incredible online nursery based in Albuquerque, NM. So…….who won? Well, that would be JPGD reader Jan Bills! My son, Luke, chose a number from the total comments, and that’s how the numbers rolled! (Luke says, “You’re welcome, Jan.”) We’re letting Jan know today that she won, and I can’t wait to hear from her about what she plans to buy from High Country Gardens. I’ll let you all know what she gets–I’m rooting for the grasses! Every good garden needs some awesome swishy grasses.
Thanks to everyone who visited our blogs, read our posts and left comments! I wish I could have given each one of you a door prize. But, I must say, the best prize is getting your own copy of “Garden Up!”–it is so full of inspiring ideas and gorgeous photographs that I have been falling asleep most nights this past week with the book on my stomach. Thanks for coming to our party and being the perfect party guests–we all had a blast, and it sure looks like you all did, too!
