Artful Blogging Feature: and an extra copy



I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.
Mine was celebrated at home with a beautiful petite cake, but
later my spouse took me, my two sisters, and our kids for Chinese.








In the past, I've received blooming trees for Mother's Day, so each year they are gift again.
Depending on what one likes to call it, here is my Vitex or Desert Lilac or Chaste tree in full bloom. And in the front yard, I have a white oleander tree in full bloom as well.
Here is another photo of the desert "lilac".









I've not written as much this past month, because it is the time of year when the temperature gets warm and things become busy here.  My daughter had a couple of invitations to places this year, but we can only do one, so we are going to Italy and then to France, and perhaps the Loire Valley by train.









It also took me some time to pick up an extra copy of Artful Blogging, since the bookstore that carries it is not that close.









I would like to pass along one copy to someone. 
So if you would like to have a chance at a copy tell me in the comments, and make sure that your settings allow you to be emailed, so I can request your address if you are selected. 
One of us will select a name, and I will mail it to you. 
I will announce a reader next Tuesday.


Thank you for visiting.

xoxo 

Su

  3. The desert lilacs are lovely. Do they last long in a bouquet. Our lilacs smell wonderful and I love making bouquets with them, but they do not last long once picked. I have tried a few techniques that do work to give them a wee bit longer bouquet life.

    I would love to receive a copy of your published work.

  4. Chaste trees are really lovely and so right for warm climates. I have always wanted one. Now to find a place to put it.
