Hellebore Book Give-Away Winner!

I am happy to announce the recipient of my Hellebore book Give-Away!

From Collages

Congratulations to Sue (A Corner Garden)! Sue will receive the paperback copy of Hellebore's, by Graham Rice.

Thank you to everyone who participated in my first give-away! Many of you had 6 entries each, 5 of which came from posting this give-away on your sidebar or by a link in a post. Thanks so much for your interest! I'm sorry that everyone of you couldn't win!

--Today I am thankful for my first give-away!


  1. Wonderful Collage, Jan! Love all the blooms!
    Congratulations, Sue!

  2. Congrats to Sue! What a nice give away you had!

  3. That was fun Jan thanks (my first contest to enter) and congrats to Sue! Linda

  4. Thanks Jan! Thanks you three! I just sent Jan my address, and now I need to pull myself away from the computer.

    That's a lovely collage, Jan!

  5. Congratulations Sue!! She just started her Hellebore collection and I know she will love this book.

  6. Beautiful collage! Congrats Sue! You'll have to be sure and let us all know what you think of the book! And thank-you, Jan for the chance to win a great book- happy gardening :)

  7. Congrats Sue!

    Gosh Jan, that is the prettiest collage. Love all those muted colors.

  8. That's a nice collage Jan

    I bet Sue's chuffed to bits.


  9. I am so happy for Sue, whose blog I read regularly, congratulations! And thanks Jan for a fun competition. What I liked best about it was that you visited my site and set up a conversation. I hope you keep in touch. Your hellebores are really beautiful! Thanks again.

  10. Sue,

    Congratulations on winning. I'm thinking of having a contest on my blog my interactive butterfly CD Butterflies of the Carolinas & Virginias

  11. That is a lovely collage. I just love hellbores and just bought my first one, which I still have to figure out where to plant in the garden. Of course there can only be one winner--and we don't hold it against Sue! ;-) It was a nice idea for you to have this giveaway.

  12. Congratulations Sue! I bet the book is wonderful.~~Dee

  13. What a lovely thing to do. I won a book this way a while ago so I don't enter any of the draws, but am constantly delighted by the winners. And this collage...Jan, it's so wonderful, it caused me instant Hellebore Heartache or Lenten rose Lust. Or something.

  14. Congratulations to Sue! She's a lucky lady.
    How I'd love to have a few of those glorious hellebores! They're all so beautiful, and that's a gorgeous collage you've put together.

  15. Nice collage. I like the colours of the flowers. Have a good day!

  16. This collage... are this all hellebores growing in your garden? They are beautiful!

  17. Look at all those beautiful hellebores in your collage! I'm just sighing. Congrats to lucky Sue! The book looks amazing and you are so nice to give a copy away.

  18. Lucky girl that Sue! Jan, lovely collage..I'd really like that double white pretty!!

  19. Hi Jan

    How are you?, I feel fine.

    I have still snow in my garden so I don´t need to do any gardenwork yet.
    I´m going to cower the pine for the sun so they don´t start to grow because the ground is still frozen.
    Happy Easter

  20. Jan,
    What a generous gardener you are! Maybe we can come up with a give away idea of some sort, everyone likes to get a surprise every now and then. I was very shocked to find the orchid post, that was actually Jamie. I didn't know he was doing it, he's never blogged before. Pretty good for his first one. :-)

  21. Lovely collage, Jan. Congrats to Sue. And I've deleted the post on 'Stroke' since I really don't feel good having it on my blog.

  22. Happy Easter Weekend.... it is always such a blessing when you stop by my blog.
    Enjoy your book giveaway.

  23. Your pictures are beautiful like that. I just love those things. Congrats to Sue Blessings to Sue and to you too. Have a great Easter!

  24. Hi Jan.
    What fun this give-away must have been. I missed it getting ready for another road trip, it was a busy time. Thought of you as we cruised down 95 through Virginia this morning. How I wanted to stop by and see your gardens! Would love to some day.... Hello from South Carolina tonight!

  25. You have a really nice blog ;) such many beautiful flowers.


  26. Congratulations to Sue! I just planted my first hellebores ever; I don't know if they'll bloom this year (the book would probably give info on this), but I'm looking forward to seeing their blooms whenever they might appear. Lovely collage, Jan! I hope you had a good Easter.

  27. Hi Jan, that hellebore collage is gorgeous. (I understand, it is not your own camera work, but very, very beautiful) I would never have known there were so many varieties and colours. Just been having a little peek around your sight and am enjoying it immensely. This is such a great sentence: "Let's not grumble about roses with thorns,
    Let's be thankful that thorns have roses!" - I want to keep remembering it!:) Hope yu are having a great Easter.
    Take Good Care. Pauline

  28. Thanks again, Jan! I love the book! Thanks for all the congratulations, too!

    Check out today's post:

  29. Maybe next time it will be me...

  31. Hi Jan~
    The Helebore is such a stunning flower! Looks like your give away was a great success! I hope to try my own give away someday soon. Any hints on the best way to do it?
    Hope you're in the garden having fun today!
    Happy belated Easter! ~ Karrita

  32. WOW, I didn't know it ... uhm, hope I can join it next time. :)
    Those flowers are so beautiful!

  33. That will teach me to go on vacation! (and never should I have prepared for it!) ha!! I'm thankful you're so generous and we all know someone who is very thankful right now! ;-) This looks like a great book... I think I'll check it out. Happy Spring to you!! :-)

  34. Jan, you are too kind, and thank you for participating in Anna's wonderful project, Gardening by Letter. It was so great to receive all the amazing cards, letters, and other items from everyone.

    Muddy Boot Dreams
