Hey, guys!

You haven't seen me posting in this forum before, or at least not for a long time, but I wanted to give y'all a big THANKS for the last few days. You see, I've been pouring over many of your posts as I struggled -- and struggled -- and struggled -- to finalize an order from Schreiner's. Y'all were a huge help -- and huge enablers -- as I built up and whittled down my list.

THANKS!

Oh, what's that, you say, you want to see how my list ended up?

Whistling
Hilarious!

Here's what I ended up ordering. I was focusing on rebloom and/or scent, plus a few that I just wanted for one reason or another. I like strong clear colors, and I like ruffles but I don't insist on show-winning form or the newest of the new varieties.

Be Brief
Open Your Eyes
Outspoken
Struck Twice
Payback Time BONUS
Paul Black
Absolute Treasure
Mango Passion
Sharp Dressed Man
Feed Back
Mariposa Autumn
Red Zinger
Autumn Circus
Captain's Choice
Ragtop Day BONUS

Don't tell me if I got any losers -- it's too late now!

And thanks again for the help!
