Win a Signed copy of my latest book....and my Three Muses Challenge - "Time" for a Giveaway




Hi Everyone...I am in love with sunflowers and for some reason when I saw the prompt on Three Muses for this week....I started to draw a pocket watch that turned into a sunflower...I think that sunflowers always know the exact time...they come up when the sunshine hits them and they lean over when it's time for bed....Every year Cole and I plant sunflowers in our Vegetable garden and they just make me smile...I guess that is the reason my latest book is titled ...."The Sunflowers" and I would love to have a new giveaway so I am going to giveaway a signed copy of my book....just leave a comment here and I will do a draw mid December ......If you can't wait...you can click on the photo below and head to see where you can pick up your very own copy.....



My latest picture book - The Sunflowers by Diana Evans


Have a wonderful day and Good-luck with the giveaway!!!


Hugs


Diana

Leila Gervais said...

I never really thought about sunflowers before, but they do seem to perk up when the sun hits them and then droop a little when the sun goes down. Great take on the theme! I love that they can now tell time! ;-) Lovely piece!!

Elizabeth Golden said...

This is just wonderful. I love sunflowers too. On our farm I would always have 5 to 10 acres of sunflowers put in. They were beautiful. The local hot air balloon people would fly over and take pictures. I was lucky in that they often let me go for a ride. In the fall the when the heads ripened the birds would come. We would ride through the field surrounded by there cries. Finally through the winter the deer would sleep in the field, the does bellies growning bigger and bigger. Thank you so much for those memories. Funny how one image can stir all of that up.
I hope you and your son and family have a wonderful Thanksgiving and weekend. I would love to have a copy - signed by you of your book.

Eila A said...

What a wonderful idea, Diana - the pocket watch sunflowers are fantastic! And you are right - the sunflowers do know the time of day, and they follow the sun with their beautiful faces. Thanks for making me remember how wonderful the summer is - only six months to go to the next summer here!

Kelly said...

Oh how exciting to get to see the cover of your blog...which is spectacular, by the way. I think I should have a copy for our library. You'll have to tell me how to purchase it. Is it for sale at Chapters or from a particular publisher? Big hugs of congratulations to you and thanks for a chance to win a copy.

Your sunflower clocks are very interesting and ...they make me think of time spent in a field of sunflowers soaking up the sun and not caring about time at all.....lovely piece!
