three giveaway winners!

October 18, 2013

Congratulations to comment makers # 41, 9 and 19, donaldsg, Lorraine and Carmen N!  You each win 2 vintage Rowan Magazines.  I'll be contacting you in the next few minutes and will get them in the mail next week. Thank you all for participating.  You are all so sweet, I wish you all could have won!

I thought you'd like to see a pretty bunch of fall roses I picked this morning.  On the left are Red Simplicity, a fabulous ever-blooming floribunda type rose put out by Jackson Perkins.  The pink roses are from my prolific Climbing Eden, a gorgeous and healthy climber that welcomes me into the vegetable garden every morning.

OK, well, this was taken last spring!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Hi Kristen,
    I replied to you on Ravelry. Several times - sorry! Thank you so much for picking me as a winner. I can't wait to see the vintage Rowans and start dreaming about making a Kaffe Fassett coat!
    I love your roses. Eden is one of my favourites. I love those blowsy, soft pinks, especially if they are scented. Unfortunately I have to pick very hardy ones for my upstate NY garden so I can't grow Eden, but I've had luck with some Canadian Explorer shrub roses and Rugosas. They don't repeat, or only barely, but the mass of blooms in June is spectacular.

  2. Congrats to the winners.
    I love those superb roses...
