The Winners of The New Sunset Western Garden Book…


We Have a Winner!

Actually Five Winners of The New Sunset Western Garden Book. A big thanks to all who shared their favorite nature or garden related quotes to compete in my first giveaway.  Yes, it is a totally subjective decision on which are the best, so I chose those that resonated with me the most. (Trying not to let all that power get to my head.) And thanks to Sunset for providing copies of The New Sunset Western Garden Book. (If you didn’t win, it’s still worth springing for: about $21 on Amazon!)

Here are the winners, and their nature or garden-related quotes:

Eileen: I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.    John Muir

Carey:  The boughs of the oak are roaring inside the acorn.    Charles Tomlinson

LauraAnd the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.      Anais Nin

JillHow fair is a garden amid the toils and passions of existence.    Benjamin Disraeli

NancyI used to visit and revisit it a dozen times a day, and stand in deep contemplation over my vegetable progeny with a love that nobody could share or conceive of who had never taken part in the process of creation. It was one of the most bewitching sights in the world to observe a hill of beans thrusting aside the soil, or a rose of early peas just peeping forth sufficiently to trace a line of delicate green.     Nathaniel Hawthorne

Here’s the deal. In order to receive your garden book, you need to go to the CONTACT  tab at the top of my blog (or click here on word CONTACT) and send me your mailing address. If I don’t hear from you within a week, I will send it to the next runner-up.
