Joannabanana: What a great grand prize you are offering for this months Not-A-Raffle-Raffle! Thumbs up I clicked the link to get a sneak peek of that book. I don't grow roses but the book looks awesome ... I'd love it for those beautiful photo's alone!

Dave: What a great idea to offer ATP mugs for 2nd and 3rd prize! I already have 4 ATP coffee mugs (one being used as a planter) but hey, one can always use another mug. Smiling


*Blush* Ok, call me greedy, I know that I just won a great prize in last month's Not-A-Raffle-Raffle but I have a few acorns so I might as well purchase a couple of tickets this month too!


... off to the ticket booth. Green Grin!

I urge everyone to get tickets for this not-a-raffle. I have this book and it's wonderful. In addition to the beautiful photos, it contains lots of useful information, and as Dave pointed out, the information is relevant to gardeners everywhere, not just in the colder zones.

In addition to beautiful photos of rose blooms, there are photos of the damage caused by various pests and diseases, which are highly useful for diagnostic purposes.

I do miss being able to grow roses well but there are only a few varieties that will flourish down here. However, I recently broke by beloved mug so I'm in,

I attended a great Calgary Rose Society event last night. Rose Galla: Presentation of awards to all the winners of entries from the Rose Show held in July. A great bunch of people and fabulous event. Our Guest Speaker was the Mayor of Calgary

Many attendees brought a bouquet to display on the table tops. Here's mine

What a great idea for a raffle!
I already have this book, and it will be very useful to me.
There is a section on Hardy roses and also a section on the less hardy ones.
It is a great "How to do it" book.

Joanne, what a generous prize offering! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

I gave you some acorns to buy more tickets Toni.
