Love in Bloom Giveaway Hop


Welcome to the Love in Bloom Giveaway Hop, hosted by BookHounds.

Spring is sprung,
Fall is fell,
Here comes Summer and it’s
Hotter than…last year.

Of course, if you believe in Global Warming or Climate Change, that is literally true. It is warmer than last year. Which was warmer than the year before that.

But unlike my year before that, even if it is warmer here in Atlanta than it was in Seattle, at least we have air conditioning.

But speaking of warmer weather, it is already summer here in Atlanta. Spring was probably back in February. I love the winters here, but the summers are beastly. And I miss my favorite flowers from the Midwest in the Spring.

The hopeful rising of the daffodils and the tulips, and the big bright profusion of luscious smelling peonies. As much as I love to get roses, peonies are my favorite flower.

So what’s your favorite flower? Or your favorite flower or gardening themed romance? My friend Amy is in the middle of reviewing Nora Roberts In the Garden trilogy. Her review of Blue Dahlia has already posted and Black Rose is scheduled for next month.

My current favorite gardening-themed series is Marty Wingate’s Potting Shed series, starting with The Garden Plot. They may not be romances but romance certainly happens to her gardening and sleuthing heroine in the course of the story.

  1. I don’t have a favorite flower, but I like many, such as lilacs, petunias, and marigolds. I can’t pick just one as a favorite.

  2. Tulips! I have tulipomania! πŸ™‚ (I only wish they had nice scent like freesia.)

    I’m 99% sure you were my introduction to the Potting Shed mysteries, which I have enjoyed enormously.

    And we’ve been having a cool, damp spring here and I’m ok with that.

  3. There’s a children’s book called Chrysanthemum, and it’s just the cutest thing. This little girl (mouse) goes to class and has this name she loves, Chrysanthemum, but when she gets to school for the first time the others kind of make her feel bad about it. It’s adorable how it all finally works out, and anyone who has young kids to read to should absolutely pick it up.

  4. Oh, if someone was to give me flowers, I’ll love them, since that is so rare. That said… definitely love red roses! πŸ˜€

  5. My favorite flower is carnations, and I like them in different colors. Thanks for having the giveaway.

  8. My favorite flowers are probably day lilies. We have orange and yellow ones in our yard. I like the orange ones best.


  9. Poison Diaries by Mayrose Wood! The setting is medieval fantasy and its about a doctor who gardens at home. He has been planting a garden filled with as much deadly plants as he could get ahold of. There’s more but that’s spoiling territory! I highly recommend it!

  10. My favorite flower has always been daffodils, closely followed by tulips. You are right though, they now bloom at least 3 or 4 wks earlier than they used to. As for books with a garden theme, my favorite is Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen. I loved it and highly recommend it.

  27. I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    be a lot more useful than ever before.
