Sarah Raven giveaway

Here's a little unexpected treat for you (and me)
if you like pretty spring flowers, that is .....

You may remember a little while ago when I planted
one trillion Narcissi bulbs
No? well you can read about it here if you like
anyway I went bulb crazy after that and decided to plant some indoor ones too
some for Christmas gifts and some to pretty up our Christmas-time home
most of them are doing their 'thing' in the blacked-out shed for now

Which brings me on nicely to the point of this post ....
..... with great excitement, the lovely peeps at Sarah Raven
offered to let me review some of their indoor bulbs
well it is no secret that I AbSoLuTeLy adore Sarah Raven
how exciting
 I chose these beautiful paperwhite narcissi 'Ziva'
I am hoping they will be perfect timing for Christmas day flowers
they have the most amazing fragrance
I'll let you now how I get on when they arrive

Narcissi Paperwhite 'Ziva'

 and ..... get this ..... they asked me
if I'd host a pretty wonderful giveaway, for you .....
 my lovely readers
kind, huh?
how would you like to get your gardening mitts on
 a selection of Sarah Raven narcissi bulbs?
  (who wouldn't?)

You can take a peek at the narcissi on Sarah Raven's website if you'd like
