it's good to be home

Good morning!  I've missed you all.  I'm just back from a wonderful family vacation in California  -- first of this type in ten years for us.  It's nice to be refreshed and renewed and ready to get back to the business of everyday life.

Wanted to let you all know about Timber Press's giveaway this week while you still have time to check it out.  The prize is this book, 50 Beautiful Deer-Resistant Plants, and a pair of gloves from Womenswork.

I don't know about you but deer are a big problem in my garden.  I'm looking forward to reading the book, though I have to admit I'm a bit sceptical.  It will be interesting to see what sorts of tips the author offers (anything besides plant selection?), as well as what the 50 plants are.*

The garden gloves look like a sure thing -- functional and cute with a promise of good fit.  What more could you ask for?

The promotion is going on until Wednesday (August 17, 8 p.m. Eastern), so head over there and give it a whirl.  It's easy and painless to enter.

*I was offered a copy of this book in exchange for mentioning the promotion on my blog.  However, I am a fan of Timber Press -- they consistently publish excellent books for plant-lovers -- and was happy to post about this anyway.  I have won a couple of their giveaways myself and regularly tweet or retweet their promotions without being asked.
