Like many others I can't participate in the raffles, or accept prizes I should say as I live outside the US.

How lovely to see one of my favourite nurseries Fieldstone Gardens in Maine participating. I used to visit regularly when I lived in Maine.

I have over 3400 acorns so if anyone wants any let me know!

Thank you, Sue! You are so generous, always.

I THINK this is the peony that I won last year from the NARR. I hope that your generosity helps many other folks share the joys of this type of gift from this wonderful website.

Thank you so much for your generous offer to give us with no acorns a chance at the raffle.

@kniphofia Sue, you have contributed so many stunning photos to our database, you are one of my favorite photographers who so generously contributes your beautiful photographs to this site! Lovey dubby

I do wish members in other countries could encourage vendors/nurseries in their areas to be a sponsor in our Not a Raffle Raffles. It would be such good advertisement for their business and would give members in other parts of the world the chance to join in the fun and win fabulous prizes too.

Sue, what a generous offer!! I couldn't tell if PlantLadyLin was still giving away acorns or not. If you still have some, may I have a few? (I can give them back to you if/when Lin has some to spare and sends me some.)

Thank you for your generosity! So sweet of you to donate the acorns that you, no doubt, put a lot of work into earning! I wish you could reap the acorn rewards of your efforts!

Sue, Ccould I get a few? I'm sorry you (& others) can't participate. I agree, vendors in other countries should participate so everyone could participate.

I agree wih Lin that you have contributed so many wonderful pictures. They just make me sigh. So anyway, I'm just writing this to tell you that. I do NOT need more acorns. I'm probably going to toss some later as it gets closer to closing time. Just emphasizing what Lin said. Next time I'm in the UK, I'll probably ask you for a garden tour.

I've never traveled internationally and would have loved to take a vacation over the pond to the U.K. I would need at least 3 or 4 weeks (likely longer) to see everything I'd like to see! Smiling My great grandparents were from Cork, Ireland and my dad's grandparents were of English and Scottish ancestry so I'd always hoped to visit Europe. Before my mom passed 15 years ago, one of my sisters and I talked about taking her to Ireland because she so longed to visit the land of her grandparents but unfortunately we never got the chance. I love history and there is just so much history in Europe!

I would be glad to accept any that you would offer if you are still doing so. If not, I completely understand, but I would greatly appreciate anything you'd offer

Sue, I have been gifted acorns, from other generous people, but if you have any left, I'd love another. I'm excited about the Not-A-Raffle-Raffle! Hurray!

I've never traveled outside the U.S, Canada or Mexico. But my ancestors on both my mom's and my dad's side were mostly from the U.K. I've traced back 7 generations here in the states, but my cousin and I are are now going to start researching the U.K. to see when they came here. Smiling

I would love to take a few of your acorns off your hands if you are still offering. nodding
