A PRESENT FOR ME MEANS A PRESENT FOR ONE OF YOU

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

Someone gave me pink tulips for my birthday on February 23rd. I adore them. Here they are in the kitchen:


I'll post a photo of the tulips in a different spot in my house every day this week because they don't like to stay put. They want to see my world.

The tulips are such a beautiful present, and now I want to offer you the opportunity to win a present.

Can you guess who gave me the tulips?


  • For every guess you make in the comments section of my blog, you get one entry. If you get the right answer, then you get ten entries. I will appreciate it ever so much if you will restrict yourself to one guess per day. You can guess every day this week. Guessing ends at midnight on Saturday, March 7th, EDT. If no one figures out who gave me the tulips, then I'll give you a clue each day, starting tomorrow.
  • If you don't want to guess, but you want to make a comment, please go right ahead. 
  • If someone guesses who the giver is, I won't reveal that the answer is correct so that everyone can continue to guess.On Sunday, I'll put the names from the comments in a hat or a jar or something, and I'll pick a name, or maybe Franklin will draw the name. The person whose name is drawn will receive a gift from me and the person who gave me the tulips.
  • This contest is limited to the U.S. and Canada because I simply cannot afford to ship the present half-way around the world.
  • The present will be a surprise. I won't reveal what it is until I'm ready to send it. If you are the winner and you don't want the prize, I'll draw another name.
  • I'll announce the winner on Monday, March 9th. If you are the winner and you want the gift, you have forty-eight hours to let me know your name and address. I will not reveal your personal information other than your blogging name. For example, if I won, then I would say that Janie Junebug won the gift.


Do you have any questions? I might have left out some vital information, such as WHO GAVE ME THE PINK TULIPS?

Let the guessing begin.

Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

    1. No, but we should consider Mrs. Shady, who is pleased I keep Shady so busy online.

  3. Leaping lizards, Janie Junebug, those tulips are beautiful! Somebody loves you big time. I think I remember you saying that WDW isn't the gifting type, so I'm gonna rule him out along with Brian Griffin, Archduke Ferdinand of Austria and Marvin the Tap-Dancing Horse.

    My official guess is that FYM (Favorite Young Man) gave you those flowers!

    Happy Monday, dear friend Janie!

  4. Isn't there a fine young man who might have given you flowers...? I seem to recall you mentioning him but not the name. That would be my first guess. Lovely flowers.

    1. Perhaps you are thinking of my son, Favorite Young Man. No.

  5. It was WDW, right? Wait a second, that would be too easy. It was Special Young Man? I might be crossing my blogs here, everyone has these different pet names for the anonymous people in their life so I get confused. Fun contest. I love when fellow bloggers get all generous.

    1. "Special" Young Man amuses me because it suggests he took the short bus to school.

  6. I think of all the people in your life we know of and cannot decide who to pick. So, another happy birthday, and we'll all enjoy the tulips.

  8. Lovely pink tulips, Janie! I'd have several guesses, but first one would be WDW! Next would be that son, then maybe the Hurricane!

  9. Happy belated birthday, my sweet friend! I hope it was as wonderful as you. And my guess? Hmmm. The Dowager Countess?

  10. Hmm, I'll save my obvious guess for later in the week. For this guess I say Middle Child.

    They're lovely.

  11. I have no idea who gave them to you, but I know it's not me. So my guess is "not me." Feel free to give me zero entries for that brilliant deduction. They are beautiful, though. :)

  12. They were given to you by someone who holds you in very high regard. Did I guess right?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Dear Janie, many people might give you pink tulips to say thank you for being a woman who grows and changes and embraces life. I'm thinking that your daughter gave you these. Peace.

    1. If it were you, I hope you'd remember. I don't have a crazy person across the road, as far as I know. Just the people who have a pig. I haven't purchased flowers in many years.

  29. I didn't read all the comments, so I don't know who guessed what. I'm going with the hot young guy who lives next door.
