2016 April Showers/May Flowers wild-release challenge (4/15-5/15): post here!

This challenge, inspired by crrcookie's challenge from a few years back, will start on April 15th, 2016 (12:01 am your local time) and end on May 15th, 2016 (11:59 pm your local time).

The goal is to release books with the names of plants in the title or subtitle, and/or with (identifiable) plants on the cover. More details follow. [If you aren't sure if a particular word or picture counts, just ask; I'm inclined to be flexible as to theme, but for it to be any fun we must draw a line *somewhere*!]

1. Embedded words are acceptable (War and PEAce, BEEThoven's Life), but must be within a single word - unless you're lucky enough to find a multi-word plant-name that's embedded in a title, something like "SugarBABY'S BREATHless" [made-up title to illustrate the rather unlikely situation].

2. Specific plant names and generic names are permitted. "Flower" works, as do "daffodil" or "rose"; likewise, "tree" as well as "oak" or "linden", and "seaweed" as well as "kelp" or "nori", etc.

3. Words for *parts* of plants are also acceptable: "leaf", "stamen", "root", "corm", "seed", etc. This opens up the possibilities considerably, but do limit your words to something that's part of a growing plant. Again, if in doubt as to whether something qualifies, just ask.

4. Any plant-words in the title should be in the same language as the book, unless it's clear from context that the title is deliberately mixing languages - using a Latin name along with the original-language rest-of-title, for example.

5. I'll allow "garden" and "orchard" as collective terms for domesticated plants, but I don't want to wander too far into those possibilities - no "forest" or "meadow", for example. Still, if you have such a term that you really want to use, make an argument {grin}.

6. Cover art: since I'm fond of a nice cover, I do want to include books whose covers match the theme even if the title does not. Covers showing specific flowers, fruit, vegetables, or an obvious garden will be fine, but those which just have distant trees or lawns as an incidental part of the image will not.

7. Release types: this is wild-release only, including releases to OBCZs, Little Free Libraries, or other book-swap shelves.

For extra fun, feel free to come up with themed release locations for your books, especially if they allow for colorful release photos. And by all means combine these with any other ongoing challenges; I know this will overlap with solittletime's "Wild Wild" release challenge, among others, so any book with "wildflower" or "wild rose" in the title would work for both!

Please keep a running count of your releases. I'll give a prize to the person with the most releases, and another to a randomly-chosen participant.

Enjoy!

And thanks for the plug for my Into the Wild Wild Challenge. I'm in, but not playing for prizes.

Sounds like fun. I haven't been able to participate since the end of February, and I am anxious to get back to some releasing. Have decided to send this State Birds and Flowers Coloring Book http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13934567 off to Southernfryed's friend Jane http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/10/529489. It doesn't have the "word" Wild for solittletime's Challenge http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/23/528807, nor a Garden themed "word" for jumpingin's April 2016 Ultimate Challenge http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/23/529469, and it's too early to use for your April Showers/May Flowers here, but I will have a few others for you. ; )

I must have *something*!

I have a few books that fit.

and it doubles up nicely with the April ultimate challenge of gardening
Profile Image
Sorry...I can't find it right this second to provide link and exact title.
Profile Image
If the image of the tree is clear enough that you can tell what kind it is, rather than a stylized or generic version, it'd count. (The word "splinter" would not.)
Profile Image
Thanks for your response, GoryDetails. ; ) I found, and released it! : )

1. Regarding the TREES: A Splintered Saga ROOTed in Secrets (PIC of TREE)
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13830531

HAHAHAHAHA! Don't know why I could only remember that it had a "Splinter" in it, when clearly it has the word "Trees" and also "Root" in the Subtitle, at least in the title/subtitle that comes up on Amazon when registering, however...the subtitle is not on the book cover. It does, however, have an illustration of a Weeping Willow. ; )

I actually found a Weeping Willow in the front yard of a home in the neighborhood and put the book in a Ballycumber Release Bag, punched a hole in the top above the seal, pulled a ribbon through the hole, and tied the bagged book to the tree during a wind storm passing through ahead of a cold front to celebrate the start of your challenge today. I think the passerbys may have thought I'd gone completely mad...SO fun! : D

Sorry...still no equipment to take photos of my releases to post...waiting for "some day" to arrive. You will have to use your imagination. ; )

Will you allow this one because of the cover picture: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13898221 [I don't know plants, but if you click on the cover image to enlarge it, you may know what it is.}

Also are authors allowed? If so, I assume Fern will do. If not, I'll ask the same question about this cover picture as the first one: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13924064
Profile Image
The first book cover looks like orchids to me, so it counts. I didn't include authors at the start, so I won't add them now, but the second book cover features a columbine - you're good to go!
