My Exciting News!



                                                                      Hello everyone,
                           I have some exciting news to share today. Many of you over the past few years have encouraged me to do a book/magazine of my photos so I decided to take your advice and just do it! So, after putting in a lot of time on the computer going over all my photos from the past few years I have finally completed it!!!
                       
                                It was hard to pick which ones to use. I wanted to use a little mix of garden, tea party and cottage photos.
                         It has 82 pages with over 185 photos in it for your enjoyment!
                                My good friend Snow and I enjoyed many hours together working on the text (Snow has a real gift for writing and is a fun person to work with) and then we added a few more photos we just couldn't leave out.Thank you Snow-can't wait until we can work on the next one! Ha!Ha!
                                                                The back cover.
It was pretty exciting to get the first shipment of books delivered.


                     Thank you to all of you for your encouragement and to my family and friends  as well. It was fun putting it together and I hope you will enjoy it.

It is available to buy or preview through MagCloud just click on the link below

http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/545753

MagCloud will ship to many different countries as well so check it out if you are interested.

For any local readers it will soon be available at Time Worn Treasures and Antiques - There is even a book signing scheduled there for Saturday,May 25th!

I am giving away one of my books to two of my readers anywhere in the world so if you would like to be entered in my giveaway please leave a comment and I will draw two random numbers on May 15th.

Feel free to spread the word by taking the photo on my right sidebar- thank you!

Carolyn

Congratulations! Your book? - it's a wonderful idea :) You know, I read your blog for a few years, because your garden is the most beautiful gardens I've ever seen. This is the place where you can live, relax, dream. I look at your pictures hundreds of times, I'm learning how to compose flowerbeds. Thanks to you, I discovered many beautiful varieties of shrubs, f.e. I planted lilac Krasavitsa Moskvy a year ago and it has buds -will flourish :)It's amazing that we live far from each other - you in Canada, I in Eastern Europe - and in our gardens bloom the same flowers, the climate is similar. I'd like to have your book - it certainly is beautiful :) Regards :)Dorota

I am just amazed that you did not make this book before for your photos and garden deserve to be featured in the best gardening and decoration books.
We can see so many gardens displayed on blogs but most of them do not deserve it. People have not your talent of gardener and decorator. You show us the best.

I visit your blog for a long time now and even if i do not leave a comment, every week I appreciate enormously my visit here. Very inspiring for the artist.

I wish I could win your book.

All the best from France.

I have been following your blog, and never bothered to see where you live. Prince Edward Island, I should have know, when my son was a teenager, I was watching Anne of Green Cables, he sat down for minute and then asked " is there really a place that beautiful?" I told him this is where my mother's father was from and he asked "how could he ever have left it" I would love to be in your drawing. Thank you

Blessings to you and your family.
