I was flattered to get an e-note from CSN Stores saying that the commonweeder had the kind of readership that they were trying to reach. They proposed a Giveaway and I am very happy to pass that on to you.
Their website Teak, Wicker & More offers a whole range of outdoor furniture which includes just about everything you need to make your gardens hospitable and comfortable. They have firepits and grills, planters, and of course, patio furniture. They have birdbaths, feeders and houses, everything to welcome birds to your garden, adding their color, movement and song to the other pleasures of a garden.
The Giveaway is a 12″ Frog Sundial made of rust free and weather resistent recycled aluminum. I like it’s being made of recycled material. Recycling will be successful to the degree there is a market for items made of recycled materials.
It also has a wise inscription: “A quick summer’s glimpse, reveal egg, tadpole and frog, life in constant change.” The light and strength of the sun is always changing, even over the course of a single day. Certainly we all know that a garden can change over the course of a single day.
I have a sundial in my circle garden, and I’ve had friends who enjoyed a little pun. One placed his sundial in the midst of a bed of creeping thyme. Another, a very busy nurse and mother, placed hers in the center of a whole collection of thymes, common, silver, lemon, gold and more. She said it made her feel (in her hectic life) that she had all the time in the world.
By leaving a comment and website or email address here before midnight on Friday June 5 I will enter you in a drawing for the sundial and announce the winner on Saturday morning. The winner can then give me a mailing address and Teak, Wicker & More will mail the sundial directly.
