Before I announce the winner of the book giveaway I want to share a couple photos of alternate, “living fences,” for those of you who like the spiky side of life. This first one I spotted in Tucson, AZ last fall, and there's a similar (although much better) photo in the book. Nothing is getting through there right? The other uses a fence material I dreamed about using in my own garden when I saw the movie Freda and an image of the fence around the two artist’s homes… (photo source) My memory of that image was triggered by an article in this month’s Garden Design magazine on the Mexican treasure Jardín Etnobotánico… (photo source) (photo source) If you haven’t already seen the Jan/Feb issue of Garden Design it’s worth picking up for that article alone.
But onward to the book winner!
I used the magical online random number generator to select the winner. All the U.S. commenter’s (sorry Adam D, Bom and Delphine) were listed in the numerical order in which they commented...then the True Random Number Generator selected number 3, Alan of the blog It's Not Work, It's Gardening, as the winner! Congratulations Alan! I hope you enjoy the book and thank you to everyone who commented.
