Another Giveaway

Time for another giveaway!

I am giving all of you another chance to win a copy of the book "Success Made Simple" by Erik Wesner  For anyone interested to learn more about the Amish approach to the business world and other interesting facts about the Amish I would recommend this book.


To enter all you have to do is leave a comment and tell me what is your favorite flower. I like so many and for so many different reasons that I have a hard time saying a certain flower is my favorite. However, I think I have to say violets claim first place for me.

To be entered twice put a link to this giveaway on your blog and then come back and leave a separate comment telling me you did.

I will draw a winner using Random Generator on Friday the 7th.

You are so sweet to have so many give-aways. I am not entering since I won the book last time and it is a good one.

Hope all is going well and you are enjoying spring :D

Alstroemeria is by far my favorite flower. When I first moved out on my own, my grandma brought me a bouquet of them for a housewarming gift. They were featured prominently in my wedding, and my husband buys them for me on our anniversary every year. I think they're beautiful, especially the purple ones.

Laura said...

I really enjoy reading your blog!
Nothing fancy here - my favorite flower is the daisy! It's a happy flower and always makes me smile!

Connie said...

Thanks so much for giving us all a second chance to win this book. I've been following his blog and would love to read the book! If I had to pick one favorite flower, it would be lilacs. Please enter me in the giveaway.

David said...

Easter lily, because you know Spring is finally here !!

Diana said...

I was asked this same question at a ladies' event this weekend at church. After going back and forth because there are so many I like, I chose the daisy.

So that's my story, and I'm sticking to it!

I think my favorites are orchids!

D said...

the red & purple bat face plant

2cats said...

I think for a garden flower it would be a carnation. However, a For-Get-Me-Not is my favorite wildflower because it is the first flower I see in the Spring.

Shana said...

I think my favourite flowers are cherry blossoms! What a wonderful prize. :)

Blessings,
Shana

Violet said...

My father loved flowers and named me after one of his favorites. It has also become my favorite over the years, especially in the spring when the wild ones spring up and scent the air so sweetly.

Shana said...

I posted about your giveaway on my blog here: http://heirs-of-grace.blogspot.com/2010/05/another-giveaway.html

Thanks!

Hi! Looks like such a great book! Hmmm...favorite flower...that is a hard question. I've got favorites that are traditional bouquet flowers, but the one that first came to my mind was an outdoor for which I am anxiously awaiting its arrival. The peony. Such an amazing aroma!
Blessings,
Lisa

Mountain Mama said...

I'm not able tro start a new business at my age but I am sure curious about the book. I would think the success has to do with honesty and our heavenly Father's blessing.

Mine are roses, I've always loved them and my garden is full of sweetly scented climbers.

Laura said...

Good Morning!
I just found your blog while visiting another friend's...I think it is just wonderful! My favorite flower is the daffodil. I really love all flowers, but the daffodil has been my favorite because when I was a small girl I was hospitalized for quite some time, and was feeling quite lonely (I come from a family of 10 children..and this was the first time away from them!) and one of my brothers brought me a big bouquet of daffodils to cheer me up! Since then they have always been my favorite!
Have a blessed day!
Laura

Laura said...

Good Morning Again!

Blessings,
Laura

Al said...

I just love reading your blog keep up the good work. My favorite flower is the pansy. It means spring is here and they have such a sweet smell when you have a big group of them. They all have smiling faces to me.

Brittany said...

My favorite flowers are hydrangeas.

Simple Pleasure said...

Thank you for offering another giveaway...this is very generous of you! My favorite flower is the lilac...to me it is an old-fashioned flower, and I view myself as an old-fashioned girl!

Wendi said...

My favorite flowers are tulips. Now if they only lasted longer!

Lady Farmer said...

How can a person have one favorite flower! What ever is blooming at the moment is my favorite ~ Lilacs today, peonies tomorrow, hydrangea, roses, foxgloves, delphinium, bleeding hearts, pansies, clemetis, and hollyhocks ~ cottage flowers of all kinds.
Thank you for the giveaway ~ I have always been fascinated with the Amish. I read *Amish Grace* and am sure this book would be a good read, too.
Blessings!

Lady Farmer said...

I put your giveaway on my sidebar!

I love daisies and knock-out roses.

Jean said...

I like too many flowers but I think this stands out the most overall...

Black-eye Susans, used for my wedding.

Nell said...

I'm deeply devoted to sunflowers. I plant them in my garden, and then leave them there in the winter. The most beautiful birds come to feast on their seeds. Love them!

Cheryl said...

Thanks for the chance to win this book. Enjoy reading your blog. My favorite flower would be lilacs. We had so many bushes on our farm when I grew up.

Tristan said...

I love daisies. Simple and sweet!

Sarah said...

It is a big toss up between Tulips and Hydrangeas. Tulips because my grandmother used to plant so many of them, and Hydrangeas because they where my wedding flower. Thanks for the giveaway.

Jenn said...

My favorite flower would have to be the sunflower. I remember when I was young my great grandma would tell us a poem/story about the sunflower being like a christian should be. Just as the sunflower follows the sun, we too are to follow Jesus. It has stuck and now I get to pass it on to my own children. =D

Jenn said...

Posted a link to your giveaway. Thank you for the second chance entry.

I love the sweet smell of daffodils!

jmsauntie said...

Probably all around all-time favorite- Pansies. They are such cheery things!
But I can't think of any I don't like! ;)

Dave said...

I love so many of the flowers, but I guess I like the lilacs and their fragrance the best!

And I love reading your blog too!

Linda G. said...

I'd have to say zinnias; no, wait a minute, sunflowers, oh, alright, both I love! Lind at rgranch@pioneer.net

Taylor said...

Gerber Daisies.

Stephanie said...

I would have to say that lilac is my favorite flower. Since they are seasonal it makes me appreciate them even more.

Sarah said...

Um favourtie flower... I think a rose - especially David Austins! Thought I also do admire fields of wild flowers - but then that is a variety of flowers inst it .

Okay a Rose : o )

memoriesmama said...

I would have to say wild flowers are my favorite. My bridemaids carried bouquets of wildflowers at my wedding!

Simple Mama said...

Oh gerber daisies for sure!

Tanasi Native said...

Ayyyy! I may be too late, but I'll comment anyway. I'd have to say that my favorite flowers (at the moment, all depends on the mood, you know..) are pink roses. I have a little rose bush that has the prettiest pink (tea) roses.
Have a nice weekend:)

Karen said...

Oh, this is difficult for me - I like the blooms of all kinds of things, for example the flowering blooms on my plum tree, my strawberry plants, my rhododendron, my azaleas - but if I have to pick a flower, it would be a sunflower!
