The 2010 Garden Bloggers' Advent Calendar


Brace yourselves: it's this year's Garden Bloggers' Advent Calendar!

Up for grabs in the Constant Christmas celebration of the turning of another blogging year: one recently-published book you'll all want in your Christmas stocking.



The first window, it being December 1 today (so where did that year go?!) is open already!

It's pretty straightforward: this blog post will repeat every day till the 24th December (I did warn you) with a new window open each time.

Each window links to a blog post which has a picture of a plant on it. You're looking for the first letter of the genus of the plant: so if it's Crocus tommasinianus it's a C.

There may be more than one plant on the page: so some days you'll have a number of possible correct answers. There is however a clue in the pic revealed in the advent calendar window ;D so it shouldn't be too difficult!

Once assembled your 24 letters will unjumble to make the title of a book plus the surname of the author. The first person to email me the correct answer to the address given on the last day wins!

was extremely dense last year, so hoping that it will be easier this year, plus now have a google account so I can comment!

What a brilliant idea.

Haven't seen anything like it elsewhere.

gosh this look challenging! Especially as we are off first thing on the 24th so will have to get my answer in early - provided of course I have worked out the answer

tee hee hopefully it will be a bit easier. But not too easy :D

Sorry about the graphics by the way - never my strong point. I shall try to improve them as the days go by and by the 24th I might even have them all lining up.
