I remember seeing photos of Rare Coin and thinking I really liked it. ...and I just looked up Cow Patty and it has a great beard, unusual color combo, and I think it's very pretty. Sorry I don't know anything about the others!

Snow Day is a beautiful re-bloomer from Sutton, mostly white with a lovely rim of light blue on the fall, a nice beard (white on the tip, maybe yellow based?), and "vein lines" similar to the kind on Haunted Heart. Introduced in 2014. I assume you are under time pressure to make a choice...so sending them individually!

We have a drawing... I like to be prepared so that I can make an informed decision... because you have to make it quick! Yes, Snow Day and Show Finale also look good... and easy to work into the garden.

Our newsletter came out today, and they put up pictures of all the door prizes for the year.. They're a couple links down from the Nov-Dec. 2014 newsletter (which has four of Joe Ghio's 2015 introductions pictured)

Unfortunately for me, I do not grow any of these. If I had to choose one it would be Shaman's Magic. I only have one AB and want to add a few more.

I have several from that list, but just got them this year, so I can't evaluate them yet.

Oh my, I would love to get my hands on those Burseens, especially Beyond Bubbles. Double Chocolate, Venus Bay, and Chestnuts Roasting are making me drool. And Love the horns on Not A Clue. There really isn't a loser in the bunch. 70 door prizes is impressive! Hope you get the one you want!

the 70 are for the whole year. Friday's meeting's offerings are the first post (20). I usually don' t get my first choice at the raffles, so them I'm left a drooling mess the more I think about the one(s) that got away. So you can see how being exposed to, and teased with this list every meeting could cause some serious over-buying. Hilarious!

There sure are a lot of beauties on that list of 70 Sherry! I'll make sure to mark my calender for your club auction next Summer.
