I received another gorgeous book to review on Monday, I wasn't expecting this one and it's all about Roses.
David Austin Roses to be precise 'English Roses'.
It's a newly published book again by Conran octopus and in fact the information sheet I received says it's due out on 7th April 2011, so it may not be available to buy until then ( I haven't checked)
It's called 'The English Roses' By David Austin, and as it says on the inside of the sleeve - I quote :-
With photographs of superb rose gardens and advice on growing and maintaining his roses, David Austin's 'The English Roses' is an essential reference for every rose lover and gardener.
Having looked through this beautiful book with it's stunning photographs I heartily agree with the quote.
It's a large coffee table book, it's worth £30 publishers price and it's going to be my giveaway to one lucky person out there. As much as I would like to keep it, I don't grow roses even though I love them. So I would like to share my good fortune of receiving the book with someone who does grow and love roses.
I have never done a giveaway before but have seen them on others blogs and actually won a voucher to spend at 'Lands End' from Damo's blog, so I know how it feels to win.
I will keep the giveaway open from March 31st until 12th April and then I will get a friend to pull a name out of the hat.
To enter for a chance to win this great book, just leave a comment telling me your favourite English Rose and with a link so you can be contacted. and then post a mention on your blog about this giveaway and add this link http://mylottieheaven.blogspot.com/2011/03/another-book-review-and-this-one-is.html
I am sorry to say that I can only post to the UK as I went to the post office this morning to get it weighed (it's a heavy book) and it's quite a lot just to post in the UK, so I really can't send it overseas. SORRY !
PLEASE let others know about the giveaway.
