You do not want to miss this one!!! We are raffling off a true treasure this month, and there will be a total of three lucky winners.

The first place prize is a beautiful painting, by Sharon, painted specifically for a lucky ATP raffle winner!

The second and third place winners will receive Gloriosa tubers from jmorth - 15 tubers for 2nd place and 5 tubers for 3rd place. The Gloriosas will be mostly Rothschildiana with maybe some G. greenii mixed in.

Tickets are available at 10 acorns each and are available starting now and ending on June 7th.

You can read much more about this painting (and see pictures of the painting), and buy tickets here:

Good luck to you all!

Probably not. If someone outside the US wins the bulbs, I think the best choice will be for you to gift it to another member of your choosing, and I will compensate you by returning the acorns you spent on the contest. How does that sound?

I'm glad y'all like the painting. Thank you!
And Chelle, there is no shortage of paintings at my house. It's what I do. You grow all those beautiful plants, but since I don't do that quite as much anymore, I just paint them. Painting is my therapy in my old age. Smiling

Did you all look at the links and see jmorth's glorious gloriosas? Oh boy!! What a prize they are going to be for someone!
