Another heavy snow storm/blizzard was coming our way but it looks like the worst of it MISSED us. Hallelujah! The meteorologist said there has now been seventeen storm systems come up through our part of the Midwest since January 1st. Which explains why my head has ached so much... yikes.
Let's just say I am tired of having to shovel snow and drive my car as if I were one hundred years old with really thick glasses. Hehehe, as it is I got behind a very slow and very senior citizen at the grocery store today. The cashier kept looking at me with an apology in her eyes. When the little old lady was out of hearing range, I told the cashier I didn't mind waiting at all. I'm getting slower and a little more dense with every year!
I am thrilled to be able to offer you this book for a Spring give-away. The nice people who give us Victoria Magazine sent me this to review a few months ago. I told them at the time that I wanted to wait until early March. What makes Flowers especially unique is the way the author has separated the chapters by COLOR! It covers more than flowers, too. For instance, the chapter "Orange" also gives advice on using Persimmons and Bittersweet in flower arrangements.
If you love flowers in general and arranging them in all kinds of containers, you will love curling up in a comfy chair with a glass of iced tea (assuming we have warm weather soon)... or perhaps outside on your porch with a cup of morning coffee... and finding inspiration for using your beloved flowers.
I'm going to also include my copy of Mrs. Whaley and Her Charleston Garden for added inspiration. This is such a charming book and if you enjoy gardening, you'll find excellent advice from Mrs. Whaley and her gardener-friend. I enjoyed it just as a good biography. I just may have to add a few packets of my favorite tea in with the package. :)
So... all you have to do is comment on this post. I'll leave it up until Monday afternoon (which will hopefully give me time to catch up on e-mails!).
