[The contest has ended. See the 7/15/2010 post.]
Today, Teena in Toronto wished me a Happy Blogoversary! I had to think for a moment about what day it was. Yes! It is my blogoversary! My 3rd in fact. And, it took Teena's attention to detail to remind me!
So, it's fitting that I should launch my Summer Haiku-ku Contest today! My first contest took place on October 20, 2007. [Click HERE to see it.] It was great fun seeing the poet emerge in each of my blog pals. And the images were delightful.
First, the prize! The winner will receive a gift copy of the Gooseberry Patch Summer in the Country! Their books are a handy reference for those moments when I need something fresh and easy. With July just beginning, there will be plenty of time to enjoy it's seasonal inspiration!
