Last Friday, I had a bright idea. Offer up a FREE passionately purple perennial garden (seeds) to anyone who could guess the identities of a few pretty flowers. This was fun. (Please scroll down to bottom of post to see plant ids and seed winners.)
The flower I thought might be really hard, turned out to be quite easy. The flower I thought was a slam dunk not only fooled a few, your guesses fooled me, too. I don't plant annuals (they can't handle our volatile weather) so I know very little about them. Stock was the guess. Stock? What's Stock? Well, now I know. Plus, she looks like someone I'd like to grow.

Make a true confession and I'll send you one of these.
Have you ever been bitten by the inventor bug? I come up with a new idea every week. Have not, as yet, landed on anything the slightest bit worthy of patenting but that hasn't stopped me from pondering the many ways to make a million. Clearly, I need to get together with Rana. And, take some copious notes.
Rana invented these nifty, little foam cuffs. If you visit her website you'll see they're only available in Texas. Why should Texans have all the fun?
Put them on your wrists when you're washing your face and they stop the water from running down your arms or getting your shirt sleeves wet.
I've used them and I really like them but they're not just for bipeds. Bad Dog can't get enough of them ~ though he's a little sore they come in sets of two vs. four.
Want some? All you gotta do to get your wrists in a free pair of these drip stoppers is...
Leave a comment and expose to the world...
your most hated household chore.
Last week's winners of the passionately purple perennial garden are...
Gloria, Lona, Monica, Betty, Flowercents, Sweet Bay, Kylee and Rose. Oh! Didn't I tell you? You didn't have to guess correctly. You just had to guess! If you want some flower seeds, please drop me a line. I'm all excited to send you goody bags.
