Martha Moments Contests

All right, everyone, it's time for a good old-fashioned contest. In fact, I hope it will be the first of many contests to come at Martha Moments. To facilitate contest entries I've created a sub-site for Martha Moments called Martha Moments Contests. Here, details about the various contests will be posted as well as the entries to help get other potentially-interested contestants excited about the competition.

The first contest is about your favourite outdoor plant. It can be a tree, a flower, a shrub or even a vegetable but you must explain why you love it in 150 to 200 words. The winner will receive a copy of Suzy Bales' "The Down To Earth Gardener" - a 200-page book by one of my favourite garden writers. And the clincher is that author Suzy Bales will be judging your entries and selecting the winner herself!
Please submit your entries to dreamboat7@hotmail.com with the subject line: Martha Moments Contest. All of the entries I receive will be posted on the Martha Moments Contests page for others (and Suzy) to see. The winner of the contest will receive the book with free shipping. (Note: Entrants outside the U.S. and Canada are welcome, but if a winner from outside North America is chosen, a shipping fee will be charged. Please consider this before you enter.) The contest closes April 30th and the winner will be announced on May 5th. Good luck!
About the Book:

Award-winning garden writer Suzy Bales shares her sage advice, culled from 30 years of experience, on how to create your own garden wonderland

Suzy Bales not only gardens with the greenest of thumbs, but she imparts her gardening wisdom with a friendly, storytelling voice that is both charming and informative. Millions have delighted in her gardening columns for Family Circle, Horticulture, The New York Times, and other publications, as well as her garden spots on Good Morning America. In Suzy Bales` Down-to-Earth Gardener, she invites readers on a tour of her spectacular Long Island garden, sharing her triumphs and defeats and dispensing her invaluable advice along the way.

Laid out as a stunning visual tour-from the woodland walk around the formal rose garden to the flagstone courtyard and to the kitchen garden-the more than 150 full-color pictures beautifully illustrate the lessons Suzy imparts in the text.

Packed with the "down-to-earth" gardening secrets of the woman who has won two Quill & Trowel awards from the Garden Writers Association of America, as well as been named Garden Writer of the Year from the American Horticultural Society, this is inspirational reading for any gardener.
