shameless self-promotion


It's the time of year when people look for gift suggestions, and Shirley Bovshow at www.GardenWorldReport.com has recorded a show featuring several garden writers (including yours truly), each with a garden related gift idea.

For those of you who don't know my life's story, my first career was on Broadway. I still love to sing, and recorded a CD of (mostly) show tunes about flowers and plants. Shirley was kind enough to include my CD Green Up Time on her show and asked me to assemble a slide show to accompany the music. I collected 20 images that fit the green-up theme, then scrambled to record a video intro on Mike's cell phone! (Be kind, I need to work on my video skills.)

I hope you like the music, and if you decide it would be the perfect gift for the gardener on your list, please feel free to order from my website.

Oh delicious! Thanks for the reminder of what a lovely voice and "elan" you have. I gave this CD to my mother for Chridtmas a few years ago, and she still enjoys it.

Fantastic! I finally met Shirley at the GWA meeting in Malibu a few weeks ago--she knows where to find talent,,,not just the gardening variety. Love this, thanks for being shameless.

What a wonderful reminder during this cold and dark time that there WILL be a green spring ahead!

I love your CD. Enjoyed it on the way to the last GWA meeting. With your permission plan to use on coach trip to Philadelphia Flower Show! Cheval

This is a great gift idea - I loved sharing this with my mother (who so appreciated plants and gardens and songs and music)...

Ellen Zachos said...

Thank you all for your kind words!

Dear Ellen,

Your CD is the perfect holiday gift for anyone who appreciates a beautiful singing voice, gardener or not. Yes, I admit I'm prejudiced!

I love it. It makes me happy when I listen to it as I work -- or any time.

Thank you for yet another of your many talents!

~ Hilda
