book giveaway, and happy holidays!

EVERYONE IN MY YARD AGREES WITH THE LITTLE FROG in the blue boots: “Hurrah for Santy.” To that end, we–Jack the Demon Cat, the frogboys, the birds and snakes and I–wish you all a happy holiday season and also extend the offer of a possible gift: Two people can win copies of my “old” book, “A Way to Garden,” along with advance reading copies of my next, “And I Shall Have Some Peace There.” Details below, but meantime, let’s strike up the band, shall we?

The chance to win one of two sets of books begins now, and entries will close next Tuesday, December 28, at midnight. I’ll pick the winners Wednesday at random, using the tool at random [dot] org as usual. To enter, all you have to do is comment below–just say hello, or season’s greetings, or “Hurrah for Santy” or whatever you want. Even, “I’m in,” or “I’d like to win the books” will do.

Whether you choose to enter or not, here’s the important punchline:

May your holiday season be peaceful, safe, and spent in the company of those you love. Blessings all around, friends!

    Hi, I have just discovered you and your site! Am very happy about it since I also garden in zone 5 in Nova Scotia, Canada and I love to try new things. Your site is gong to be fun to research. And hopefully my winter will go by a little quicker now.

  2. Ellen says:

    Would be thrilled to win your new book. I too walked away from a corporate career and never looked back. Thanks for sharing your experiences and inspiring us all…

  3. Joan from Minnesota says:

    Hooray for the holidays – and thoughts of spring – and your wonderful blog. Best wishes Margaret for the new year. And I hope I win the books!

  4. Marcela says:

    I just love the title “And I shall have some peace there”, that’s going to be the name of my new house, if you allow me to plagiarize it… Thank you.

    I am already sick of the snow…so I was searching some of my favorite garden sites yesterday. Come on Spring! Would love your book! Happy New Year Margaret!
