A New Kind of Giveaway

I like giving stuff away. It makes me happy. Something that doesn’t make me happy lately is that I have just about zero time to respond to comments. I love connecting with my readers and feel badly about not getting back here everyday to respond to everyone. But, I want to show my appreciation; so – here is what we are going to do. Each month I am going to choose one photo to give away to a commenter. Completely random and anyone in the US and Canada can win. [my family just snivels waaay too much when I exclude them from a giveaway] May Comment GiveawayEvery time you comment, you get another entry. [the only exception to that would be if someone puts in 10 gratuitous comments a day just for the entries – trust me, the winner is going to be a genuine commenter] Every comment, on any post, during the entire month of May means another entry. This giveaway will run through May 31st, with the winner, along with the prize for June, being anounced June 1st.

To get started, for the winning commenter during the month of May, is this one to the right. It’s an 8×8 print of some hostas just coming up in my back garden last May. Matted in black with a mahogany frame [total size is about 12×12] – shipped straight from the lab I’ve been using. They do really nice work and ship very quickly. [If you are impatient, this same item is for sale, for $65.00, shipping included.]

So comment away! I can hardly wait to see who wins!

    I hope my comments are not gratuitous! I don’t want to be excluded …. even though I am family! ; ) (That wasn’t nice to say that Ellyn snivels!)

    I always say it is better to give then receive. Everytime I open my refridgerator and see your 2009 calendar, I think of how gracious YOU are.
    Thanks so much!

    We had lots of hostas when we lived in Maryland…. but only a very few now that we are in Virginia… The local deer ate them ALL last year, but they came up this year and we are spraying them with soapy and peppery water this year… so far so good. The deer don’t seem to like them, well, at least not yet.

    Would love to have your hosta photo.

    Oh, and I found your blog listed over at Kate’s blog… Chronicles of a Country Girl.

  18. Laura says:

    beautiful picture!

  19. Absolutely gorgeous picture. I came over from Country Girls website. I love all of her photos and she said you blog with yours as well. Plus she did mention the giveaway.

  20. Shawn says:

    Dropping by from Country Girl’s blog and that is a beautiful photo and I love the matting and framing.

    I’ve ordered photos from her already and look here…another blog with awesome pics!
    What’s a girl to do!? ;o)

  21. nicole says:

    i am blown away by the quality and detail of your work! i really love the special effects of the picture and it looks lovely framed up like that! great work!!

  22. Jana NC says:

    Dropping by on recommendation from Country Girl, too. Your photos are lovely. I love hostas, but this year the deer munched them when they were tender shoots so the leaves have lost their pretty points.

  23. My hostas always got munched away by the snails… so by the time they were any height at all they were reduced to poor little shrivelling green stalks… So no more hostas for me! I keep strictly to snailproof plants now! (with the occasional mistake though)

  24. Kay says:

    What a lovely picture…….I’ve never been to this blog before. Always finding new ones from the ones I do read faithfully.

  25. tracey says:

    This is my first time here..and lo and behold… a give away! I usually don’t comment on my first visit but how can I pass this chance to win a beautiful photo up!?

  26. Pearl says:

  27. Oliag says:

    Directed this way through Country Girl and I’m very happy she recommend coming here! Beautiful photographs and I love your idea for the monthly giveaway:) Love the hosta photo…and will be visiting often…

  28. CJ says:

    What a lovely picture. I love spring with it’s bright, vibrant colors. Hostas are one of my favorites, but haven’t found a spot where they want to grow. I’ll keep trying. :-) I saw my first hummer at our feeder today and my first oriole looking for a feeder–I broke speed records getting one out in the tree! Thanks for a great blogsight.

  29. SquirrelGurl says:

    Love the picture of the hostas! They are one of my favorite plants.

    My parents have a BEAUTIFUL one in their backyard, they’ve pretty much left it alone and it has grown into this HUGE plant with the most beautiful blue-green tint to the leaves.

    It is one of my most favorite plants of all time. Funny how things become your favorites, you would think I would have chosen a flower of some sort but instead I chose a hosta, a plant not known for its beauty…

  30. Denise says:

    Love the hostas…of course! LOL
