I love March!
It means the end of winter and the beginning of flower season in Virginia.
The month is barely 6 days old and the first Tête a Tête daffodils and tiny iris reticulata have already opened in my garden.
In 1992, when I planted a handful of Tête a Tête bulbs, they were a novelty-- and very expensive. Now, these early-blooming mini daffodils are one of the most popular daffodils in America. You can buy pots of ready-to-bloom Tête a Tête are for sale at my local grocery store. This March, I estimate that nearly 200 of these cheery little dafs will appear in my yard.
This year, there is another reason I love March... Lidy at French Garden House has posted an interview with me on her beautiful blog.In the interview, I've shared my Five Favorite Tips For Decorating Coastal Style, shared advice to folks who want to become writers and explained how I got interested in Waterside Cottages.
Dan Mayers contributed a dozen of his marvelous Waterside photos to the blog post, too.
Lidy is also holding a Book Giveaway. You can enter to win a copy of my book Waterside Cottages, but you'd better hurry. A winner will be chosen on March 8th (my son's birthday!)
There are several ways to enter and additional ones for improving your chances of winning.
