winter story contest--win 20 packets of seeds
WINTER STORY CONTEST--TELL US A FUNNY TALE
Tell us a funny story somehow related to GARDENING or ANYTHING OUTDOORS that has occured to you in the months of NOVEMBER, DECEMBER OR JANUARY. I know many of you have dormant gardens now, so it can relate to such things as chasing critters, inadvertently taking a dip in the water garden when you thought the ice was frozen, falling on your butt in front of the mailman, getting frost bite on your ears putting up holiday lights (ok, the last four are up close and personal to me), feeding birds, new pets/children experiencing the winter weather, turkeys flying through windows, aliens landing on your balcony...Pretty much anything that occurs outdoors in the winter months (if you live in warmer climates, I will envy you but not hold it against you). Remember, we all need a good laugh, so please relate something FUNNY.
BUT.... PLEASE, NO PICTURES. If you post pictures, you will be eliminated from the competition. If you want to know why, email me directly.
The contest starts immediately and runs until midnight Thursday, December 17th. A panel of judges will privately select the winner who will be announced on Saturday, December 19th. The winner will receive the following seeds:
Aster The Hulk
Darmera peltata nana
Geranium Splish Splash
Iris ensata mixed
Lupine Pixie Delight
Oenothera Tina James Magic
Primula japonica mixed
Some of the judges may share stories but will not participate in the contest. If you'd like to share a story but aren't interested in the seeds, please do so--just tell us you are not competing.
So let's spread some cheer and make each other laugh!
