Winners: Barbara & Lily Good going you two!


I thought it would be fun to share a little bit about myself in a fun contest. I will be awarding a small box of three lilies to the winner of this contest. These will be mailed to the winner, free of charge in October.
Lilies up for the contest winner are:
1 Rosella's Dream (an asiatic lily bred by Warren Sommers)
1 Momentous (4n asiatic bred by Buggy Crazy Lisa Hunt)
1 Time Zone (an OT )

Winner of the contest must be a Lily Cubit member and reside in the US (sorry! I don't have the permits required for abroad shipping).

These are questions about me. One guess per member. All answers must be correct (it's multiple choice). The first person to answer all correctly will be the winner of this box. If there is no winner in one week, members may be granted a second try. I have no idea how this will go, but I thought it would be a fun way to get to know each other better.

Give it a try Anthony, Nobody has won yet. I just wish I could send you the prize, but I can't because you are out of the US. But I bet I could send you some nice seeds instead! Smiling Take your guess.

Maybe it wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be. Who would have thought having a contest tied with free lilies could ever be a bad idea? We still had a great time here putting it together. In fact, my daughter Cubit members are dying to play!....only they know the answers. Hilarious!

I was thinking about letting you guys guess one more time, since I haven't seen much activity here. And I will sweeten the lily box with a surprise addition....sweeten the pot, couldn't hurt, could it??

2/ 7 Mike. It's kind of interesting to me the responses. It's actually the most fun....to see what kind of persona I exude.

One hint: Nobody has gotten the actor right.

Tracey gives all current guessers (anyone above this post) one more chance at it. Guess again...somebody is bound to get 100%.

Lily! You only got one wrong! Guess again. You're one away from being the winner. You should guess again....you're so close. I will tell you that the one you got wrong was in a hint. If you think about it, you'll get it. Hurray!

I want somebody to win!

I must have gotten about one line off...Lily WON ! Barbara you were so close!...So I am sending you BOTH a box...if you want those lilies. Just send me your addresses, so I know where to ship them this Fall.

Thanks for playing....
Answer key: Smiling

1) e)Enrique Iglesias -though there are other favorites in my music taste listed, like most of what I listed, I have had the Enrique hits playing most often on my iPod recently. My kids would be the first to complain about it though.
Thumb of 2011-06-21/magnolialover/857a5b

2)b)I'm growing the lilies that will be used in my sister's wedding
Last year when my sister got engaged, she knew she wanted lilies in her wedding, but not the Stargazer type. Her favorite lily in my garden was Salmon Star, so she asked me what the chances were of Salmon Star blooming on time for her wedding. I bought 40 Salmon Star lilies and divided the lilies out, so that there could be about 13 at each place. We need 7 to use in the bouquets safely. We are 2/12 weeks out now and at this time it is getting tricky. One of the places is a professional cut flower grower and I think he knows a lot of tricks. Mine might be slightly behind, I don't know. Needless to say, I want it to turn out and it is getting a bit stressful at this point.

3)d)Ralph Macchio
My entire bedroom was wallpapered with this guy as a teenager. I met him twice in 1996 on an Off Broadway Musical. He has always been a stand up guy and there is plenty to admire. He wasn't a wild guy. Just plain old Ralph, which never seemed plain at all to me *Blush*
Thumb of 2011-06-21/magnolialover/6618db

4)b)3 Though only two are pictured on my avatar, I actually have three. They just aren't all together that often to get a nice threesome picture. Here's my missing guy, Mocha.
Thumb of 2011-06-21/magnolialover/dfe192



5)d)the Young and the Restless I remember my dad coming home for lunch as a teacher and my parents watching this show. I have followed it for as long as I remember. I don't watch much tv, but I will say that Dancing With the Stars was right up there this Spring when Ralph was chosen to be on.

6)f)are you kidding? I love all lilies!
You all know that I can never pick a favorite. They all inspire when they bloom...and we love them for that.

7)e)womens basketball It makes the winter go by so fast and the pace is great. My family can all enjoy going to the games together. And we love cheering for the Wisconsin Badgers Women's Basketball Team.

Wow! Thanks Tracey!...and I'm sure I speak for Lily when I say of course we both want those lilies!
Rosella's Dream is very pretty
ANYTHING from Buggy is a treasure
And Time Zone is one of the few I ordered more than one of for this year, so it goes without saying I can't wait to see it bloom and will welcome another one.
Thumb of 2011-06-21/chocolatemoose/7a0e0b Santa Rosa with 7 blooms and 3 more to go. This was a single, new bulb last year which bloomed. Overwintered in a refrigerator from October to March.

Thumb of 2011-06-21/chocolatemoose/1b0f1a Just a few currently blooming

Thumb of 2011-06-21/chocolatemoose/5d2570 Looking pretty healthy...Yes, you can grow them in pots.
