Got my tickets, and have all my fingers and toes crossed! Iris are my passion! Sure wish the computer with most of the pictures on it hadn't crashed, and I'd get to work on uploading more, just to earn a few more acorns for this drawing!

And by the way, I want to mention that in about a month we're going to offer ATP shirts again, where you can buy them with acorns. So if you're wanting shirts, make sure you hold back at least 125 Acorn for shirt buying. Smiling

I hope everyone understands that the iris rhizomes that are the prizes will be dug and sent in July/August, the proper time for transplanting. Good luck!!!!!!!!!

We've had winners in the past who only bought a single ticket. It's a long shot but is possible!
