Another 11th Day Giveaway!

The 11th day of the month…time for another 2011 giveaway! We’re really focused on our garden these days since it will be on the Mary Lou Heard Garden Tour on April 30. I can’t give away tickets to the tour—because it’s free! All you need is the list of addresses to you can visit some wonderful “real gardens for real people.” The printable list will be on the website soon.

But I can give away something related to my garden. Pictures! The winner of this month’s giveaway will receive three of my garden photos, of your choice. Maybe you’d like a print of the colorful textures of coleus and geraniums.


Or an exotic passion flower.



I love the colors of this clematis with the new fern frond.


We have unusual container plantings too!


I always think there’s nothing to compare to the excitement of having a water lily bloom.

Perhaps you’d enjoy some of our garden creatures, such as a thirsty raccoon...


…or a butterfly on bamboo…

…an early morning web…

…or a copper dragonfly.


If you’re a fan of yellow kitties, our Noll Baxter often models for us.

More images are on our garden website—take a look!

The winner will choose the size of your prints as well as the images. If you’d like a chance to win, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. I’ll throw them all in the hat and choose a winner early next week.

And if you’re in Southern California on April 30 and can come by for the garden tour, I’ll be having a special giveaway just for Queen of Fifty Cents readers…stay tuned!


  1. gotta mark my calendar!! You have a beautiful garden!

  2. Your pictures are gorgeous -- enough so that they would make wonderful notecards. Love the kitty pictures, particularly since I am kitty-less right now. Thanks for the laughs you always provide on your "travels."

  3. Wow, your garden is beautiful! I think that raccoon is hilarious. Does he ever take a full dip? These would make fabulous postcards!

  4. I wish I lived within visiting distance as I would surely attend this garden tour. You make us feel as if we are right there with your beautiful pictures. Simply gorgeous!

  5. I'd love to see your gardens in person but since we're on the other side of the country I'll have to be satisfied with the pictures. VERY pretty!!
