These Not-A-Raffle-Raffles are always so exciting and so much fun and with the wonderful prizes being offered by these two companies, I bet this raffle gets a lot of entries! I remember Daffodils from my youth growing up in Virginia, they are such beautiful harbingers of spring! Daff's don't do well here in this part of Florida so I'm not entering to win the bulbs ... but I'm buying a few Raffle Tickets just for the fun of it! Green Grin!

Good luck to all entrants!

If my name is drawn I will ask Dave & Trish put the remaining names (minus mine) back in the hat and they can draw another winner with my compliments. Smiling

I can't do that, actually. The drawing is electronic and happens automatically by the raffle system that I programmed. I click a button that says, "Print Winners" and it randomly does the drawing and prints out to my printer the winning names. So if you win you will have to claim the prize or give it to someone of your own choice. Smiling

Thanks Dave, I'd forgotten that you had it programmed that way!

Well, Daffodil's don't grow down this way so If I win, the prize will definitely get donated to someone else. Smiling
