Rosie Posie Giveaway

I’m feeling a bit more upbeat today. Amy is responding well to her new medication and is anxious to star in another Bustle & Sew giveaway (or indeed any activity which involves extra food – yes, she must be feeling more herself again!) So … I have taken a better photo of the Rosie Posie Journal, (tutorialposted yesterday) and am offering it as a free giveaway. Bear not included!

 
 
As regular readers have probably realised, the rose is one of my favourite flowers… to me it epitomises our English summer. I have many roses in my garden, though my favourites of all are the wild dog roses that festoon our Devon hedgerows in June.
 
 
If you’d like the chance to be selected as winner of the Rosie Posie Journal by a large black furry paw then please leave a comment below telling us which is your favourite flower. (I did think of asking about favourite dog, but clearly all those not answering female black Newfoundland would have been eliminated by our judge!). The draw will close at midday (BST) Sunday 11 July and the winner will be announced as soon as possible after then. I am happy to post overseas.
 
 
And finally, a big thank you to those who took the trouble to leave comments or send emails about Amy – your kind thoughts mean a lot to us all here at Coombe Leigh.

The rosey posey cover is beautiful, you did a great job. I am torn for my favorite flower…I love hydrangea, nasturtium, forget-me-not, and the simplicity of a fresh, home-grown carnation (the smell is so strong). If I had to pick just one though, I would have to go with the wysteria. My mom has had both the bush and climbing varieties for as long as I remember. I can remember going out with tarps and flood lights when a late frost threatened so that we could protect the flower buds. There is just a special place in my heart for them.

My favourite flower is also a rose. It has been for as long as I can remember. The rose is my birth month flower and my daughters name is Victoria Rose. My favourite colour rose is a pink rose but I also love the Peace Rose because it reminds me of my Mum. Cant get enough of their sweet smell. Whats not to love.

I audibly let out a sigh of relief to hear that Amy is feeling up to being the number chooser. I'm sure Ben could fill in nicely but it is wonderful to know that Amy is feeling better. Keep it up beautiful Amy.

The journal cover is GORGEOUS! Oh how lovely. But you want us to choose only one flower as a favorite? Oh my….really? Just one? OK, today I'm going to choose Hollyhocks. Mine are blooming so beautifully right now. I just love them standing in the garden so tall and colorful and proud. So there it is…I choose hollyhocks.

Tricky one… for picked flowers I love pink gerberas. But for the garden, roses win every time. So much so that my husband made me a wonderful rose garden yesterday, and it is lovely. Our own Rosie thought it was all in her honour of course…

I have seasonal favourites. During the summer months my favourite flower is the rose, the old fashioned type that smell amazing! In the spring time my favourite are daffodils with their cheery yellow faces just oozing Welshness!

Do hope dear Amy is better today. When our children are sick, it is so hard on the momma. Thank you for sharing your talents with us.

poor Amy, I hope she recovers quickly and that this set of medication does magic.

My favourite flower is a daisy – the kind people don't want in their lawns. They remind me of childhood and making daisy chains for hours and dressing up my poor suffering grandfather with them.

I hope your daughter is up and running around quickly. The rose would have to be my most favourite flower. I have 100's of rose bushes in my garden. The sunflower is my second favourite flower. Just love the design you have made up. Happy days.

I'm certainly happy to see that your daughter is doing well.

I'd have to say that my favorite flower is the lily, and secondly is the rose (especially pink ones – nothing beats the smell!) . 🙂

Thank you so much for doing this! ♥

I'm so pleased Amy is feeling better. Please give her a big hug. My favourite flower is the pansy, especially the deep purple ones. Here in Norfolk we've let our front garden grow wild, (I think the neighbours tought we had gone mad) but we scattered hundreds of wild flower seeds over it, and now it's absolutely beautiful. (Or as one visitor said, 'Isn't it about time you got rid of all those weeds?' Philastine!

Lovely journal. I think I would have to say california poppies. They are such a bright orange and so easy to grow they make a cheerful splash of colour in the garden.

I am very fond of the flowers of the 'mock orange' tree (I don't know the proper name), the scent is wonderful. Woofs to Amy.

Glad Amy is better, my little doggie friend is also under the weather so I can empathise. Anyway, my favourite flowers are hydrangeas. I've got table clothes with them on, vases, the real thing, and I'm also attempting to make a cushion to adorn the sofa!

Love your rosie posey cover. My favorite flower is the lilac. They do not grow everywhere so everyone may not be familiar with them. They have the most heavenly scent and are a sure sign of spring.

It is SUCH a beautiful color.

My favorite is lily-of-the-valley, but, really, I adore most flowers.

We all have a special place in our hearts for our doggies and yours is no exception.

Must say SweetPeas are my most favorite flower.

Love your work.

Hugs,

My fave flower is chosen by scent and use as a tea or infusion. It is the lime flower. I remember a holiday in France – many years ago – and on the market stalls were baskets and baskets of lime flowers – tilleul – the smell was heaven. The flowers are such a lovely delicate green, look closely and there are the small petals.

Lovely!

I have a few of them in my garden..mmmm

My favorite flower is the Lily of the Valley. I can remember when I was in 3rd grade (almost 50 years ago!) my teacher, Miss Leslie, wore Lily of the Valley perfume which I loved. My mother let me pick a little bouquet of the sweet little flower to bring to her one day. They have been my favorite even after all these years!

Oh my, how to narrow it down. I love pansies for color during the cool months and snapdragons during the warm ones. And peonies, with great huge blossoms, like the ones my grandmother grew!

Hi my favourite summer flower has to be a standard Fuchsia. I have one in my garden and it looks so pretty!
