Last Chance

It’s not yet 9 am and the temperature is slowly climbing. It was 10 degrees when we got up, but now it is almost 15 degrees with still gusting winds. Still it is beautiful outside.

The sun is shining and I love admiring the beauty of the landscape. From inside. Close to the fire.

You don’t need to go outside to take this last chance to enter my drawing for Right Rose Right Place by Peter Schneider and 2 dozen CowPots for spring seed starting.  Leave a comment by midnight tonight and I’ll have my drawing tomorrow morning. I want to thank Storey Publishing and Liquid Fence for making this celebratory Giveaway possible.  Many thanks to both of them.

    Hi Commonweeder. I’m glad to see you mention Liquid Fence. It is an excellent produce. I started using it on Whidbey Island in Puget Sound and it really does keep deer and rabbits away. Then we moved back home to Ohio and I had to order it online as I was unable to locate it in nearby store.

    I like your photos, very cozy and beautiful… from inside the house. I’ll bet you get a lot of use out of that cool little shed/building in good weather.

    My, it was bitter cold out this AM. I use my curled up rhodys as a quick thermometer, and they were sure tightly rolled today! I’m not sure if I entered this contest, but I’d sure love to add to my rose ‘wish list’. Their hips are beautiful at this time of year, I’ve clipped some for decorating.

    Hi Pat, thanks for visiting my little blog and posting a comment. Your property looks gorgeous even with the snow. We got snow here in Southern Ontario and it is bitter cold – puts us into the Christmas mood though.

    Brrrrr this makes our 28F sound like a heat wave.

    Beth Ann – I’m glad for the testimonial about Liquid Fence. I knew about CowPots but the deer repellent was new to me – but I need it. The Cottage Ornee is the scene of much pleasure for several months.
    Mattenylou – You are entered now. I’m too far away from the rhodies to see the leaves all rolled.
    Heather – We are in the Christmas mood, too.
    Lisa – Lots of wind today. The blessing is that there is an icy skin on the snow so there is no more drifting.

    15F!! BRRRRR. I was chilled here and it was 52 degrees. I do not miss the cold! If the drawing is for an earthkind rose – I’m in!
