FREE SEEDS CONTEST & a New Linky Party!

I'm starting a new linky party! 

(because they are so much fun!)

This will be a cottage style linky party! 

To celebrate all things cottage style: home, food, garden, DIY...

anything that celebrates cottage style!

The party starts on Wednesdays, but I will post the link on 

Tuesday evenings for the early birds.

To celebrate my inaugural linky party, I'm giving away some free flower seeds!

Share'n a bit of the wealth in my flower garden.

Remember these flowers:

They are Nora Barlow Columbine from this post last spring.

The seed heads are dried and ready for planting this fall.

How do you get these seeds?

Leave a comment telling me "I want the seeds" and become a follower or tell me that you already follower my blog!

I probably have enough for 15 or so sets to give-away

Each set will come with planting instructions.

Here's some growing info so you can decide if these will grow in your flower beds:

  • Season: Perennial
  • USDA Zones: 3 - 9
  • Height: 24 - 36 inches
  • Bloom Season: Spring to early summer
  • Bloom Color: Pink
  • Environment: Full sun to partial shade

Winners will be drawn at random at next weeks linky party. 

You will be contacted some time during the following week for your mailing info.

Entry in the below Cottage Style linky party is optional but FUN!

(This contest is open to US entries only as I do not have a license to ship seeds internationally...sorry!)

Now...onto the 1st Cottage Style Linky Party!

Kitties and Cottages always go together!
