I’ve been busy at selling the Flowers book at craft fairs and it’s so interesting what people have said to me about why they buy the book. Many people like it as a gift for older people who might be extra hard to buy for. Massage therapists like it for their offices—so soothing and relaxing! Naturally, it’s great for gardeners and everyone who loves flowers. People like to send it to friends and relatives who miss Seattle. And it’s something unique for the person who has everything.

And speaking about sending it as a gift, if you’d like to order a book (free Priority shipping to U.S. recipients until Dec. 24) and have me send it directly to the lucky recipient, just put their name and address in the Paypal comments field. Be sure to double-check the address, because that’s exactly how I’ll send it via Priority Mail, wrapped in tissue and with a special Angel’s Trumpet bookmark enclosed. If you purchase an autographed version, be sure to include how you’d like me to write their names, if you’d like me to do that, on the title page.

Also, Valerie Easton, the Seattle Times garden writer, has featured a review of the book on her blog just today. I’m so excited!
