Due entirely to Paul's generosity, I am upping my acorn give-away! I am going from 10 per request to 25!
So each person, while the oak has acorns, will get enough for 5 raffle tickets, 5!!!

I myself have won 4 times in the raffle I think and 5 tickets was my lucky number! So thank you Paul and I will keep passing those acorns along to our members!
Good luck to all of you!

I just love this group of kind, generous folks. Everyone from whom I've received plants have sent beautiful, healthy flowers (you should see some of those lilies!). The acorns keep on flowing. The knowledge is widespread and, oh, so very helpful. Dave and all the rest who support this community work so tirelessly at keeping everything flowing and on track.
I tip my hat to you. Hurray! Hurray! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Wow, truly generous. If I am chosen, I would be grateful, but understand if the oak has been shaken free of all acorns.
