Renee's Garden Seeds Giveaway - Ended

I've talked about Renee's Garden - about how I love their wide variety of seed offerings, from heirloom to certified organic to hybrid to completely unique; that their seeds are always the first and most likely to germinate for me; and that they pledge that they "do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds."  That last one is particularly important to me.

Well, today I have a real treat.  You know how giving is so much better than receiving?  People, today I get to give you something (something other than my questionable photography skills and opinionated musings).  Today I shall hold a giveaway in honor of Spring!  

Now whether Spring is truly on her way, we shall see.

But we shall celebrate regardless, lest we go crazy waiting. Nothing like a little fun to buy us some time and sanity!
Since this is my first time hosting a giveaway in some time, I'm glad I get to stack the odds in your favor.  
I am pleased to announce that 5 winners will receive a packet of Renee's Garden "Granny's Bouquet" Zinnias!  
They are perfect for the flower-lover and the vegetable gardener alike, as they sport a stunning variety of heirloom beauty as well as attract beneficial insects (including pollinators) to the veggie garden.  I've read that zinnias attract song birds and hummingbirds as well.  The lucky recipients should receive their seeds just in time to start indoors, and in plenty of time to start outdoors this season.  And each seed packet from Renee's Garden includes clear, easy-to-follow instructions on how to plant and care for the seeds, so do not hesitate to enter even if you've never gardened before.  Every gardening adventure is a valuable learning experience.
"Granny's Bouquet" includes old-fashioned, hard-to-find varieties in orange, scarlet, cherry, violet, rose, salmon, cream, gold, yellow, and chartreuse!  And at a mature height of around 3 feet tall, they'll make the perfect border backdrop or companion plant for your tomatoes and cucumbers.
Here's how to enter:
               1) Leave a comment below with your city and state - let's see where everybody hails from!
               2) Agree that you will give your permission to Renee's Garden to add you to their monthly newsletter if you win.

To further stack the odds in your favor, "Like" Renee's Garden Seeds on Facebook  -- that will give you two entries in this contest!

Now get to it! The contest closes at 8am tomorrow CST, and the winner will be announced Friday!
