Wicked winner announcement


Thanks for playing, everyone! Loree/danger garden is the winner. Coincidentally, she just had a poisonous plant scare and had posted on it yesterday (linkie given). There were lots of other great stories, however, and I must say I am feeling very, very uneasy about what I may be allowing to infiltrate my neighbors' gardens. 

The wicked plants most often mentioned? Poison ivy, bindweed, black locust, and ailanthus.

  1. Wow! Thank you! Now I will have to make sure I get myself to Powell’s when Amy is here in Portland and get the book autographed!

    Oh and I think I accidentally deleted the email telling me I’d won…Google sent it to the spam box!
