A to Z Challenge: Z is for Zantedechia

This month, I’m taking part in the A-Z Blogging Challenge, the annual event where hundreds of bloggers write 26 blogs—one for each letter of the alphabet—and post them each day of April, except Sundays. This year, I’m blogging about: THINGS THAT GROW IN ALBERTA. Don’t forget to check back daily and leave a comment on my blog, Facebook page, Twitter, Tumblr or via email at I’ll randomly pick a few winners who will WIN a SIGNED copy of one of the Chase “Superman Duffy” comics.

I know, I know, another “scientific name”—but come on, “Z” is hard. My research showed a couple of different options, but in celebration of the last day of the 2015 A to Z Bogging Challenge I decided to go with Zantedechia, which are calla lilies.

Calla lilies are known for their trumpet shaped flowers, and after getting through the A to Z of Things That Grow in Alberta, I deserve to “toot” my horn a little. Get it? <grin>

Of course, calla lilies aren’t native to the province, but I see a lot of them (in various colours) in gardens around my house. And my aunt even used them in her wedding bouquet. My mom thought it was a strange choice until she saw them—they actually were kind of pretty.

Well. That’s it. The End. Another successful year of the A to Z Blogging Challenge. I had a lot of fun, but I’m glad it’s done so I can get back to writing other things—like my short story. I think I’m going to add another element though…maybe some spooky plants, or some of the trees I’ve mentioned throughout the blog.

What are YOU writing next?

In celebration of the END of the A to Z Challenge, I'm giving away a FULL set of the Chase Superman Duffy books. That’s all 10 books currently in the series. All you have to do is comment below or on one of my many social media links listed above—or, send me an email ( telling me why you would like to receive the books. You never know, YOU could be the winner.

Gotta Jet! That’s it for the A to Z Challenge…but you can check back next week for my regular Friday blog posts. See you then…right?

  1. Hello there.
    Congratulations on surviving the A-Z Challenge! I didn't get to visit your blog during the crazy month of April so I'm popping over today from the Road Trip. My goal is to visit all the blogs that linked up, before next year's challenge starts up again.
