HERE AT A GARDEN FOR THE HOUSE, I rely on window gardens — including the one above, in my den — to chase away the winter blues. You might like to have such a garden in your own home. Of course you’ll need plants. And to help you acquire them, I’ve purchased a $50 gift certificate from Logee’s Greenhouses. Want a chance to win this spending-spree in a random drawing?
Above: The enchanting “Blue Sky Flower,” just one of many exotics I’ve purchased by mail-order from Logees, opens its sparkling burdens of blue starting in mid-December. It flourishes for me in an east window.
To enter this giveaway, you must do these three simple things:
1. Sign up for my weekly email newsletter (if you haven’t already). It will take you only a moment to subscribe to this newsletter which is completely SPAM-free.
2. Post a comment below, mentioning one or more of your favorite flowering houseplants. Mention also your email address (or just the first part of it). This will not only enable me to verify that you’ve subscribed to my newsletter, but it will make it easy for me to find you should Random.org select your comment as the winning one (I don’t select the winner).
3. Click the Facebook “Like” button below. You can join me on Facebook, too, if you wish.
Enter soon! This drawing ends on Saturday, November 12, 2011, at 11:59 PM EDT. I’ll use the little gadget at Random(dot)org to select a winner.
