We really need to spark something, this forum has been standing still for a long time. Rolling my eyes.

Thanks everyone! I have learned quite a bit. The only problem is that the week went by too quickly.

It was an awesome week and Jo thank you so much for asking me to participate. Now that I have more writing time, it was a pleasure. Y'all know wildflowers have and always will be my favorites.

Your articles were great, the banners were wonderful, and Jonna, I loved loved loved your article too. You mentioned that I helped you, but I want everybody to know that you really didn't need me at all. You did a great job, excellent in fact. And it was my pleasure to take a look at it early on. (Thanks Christine!)

Carole/Tee, I have to tell you, I've spent all day long reading about Monarchs and waystations and looking at everything I could find about them. That was one of the most exciting articles I've read in a long time and seems like it stirred up a lot of interest site wide as well. Thank you for packing all that big wallop into your article. Already got my milkweed, now to expand on that.

So now I have two projects ahead of me: Monarchs and Frostweed. Yeah!!

Thank you so much - I was really looking forward to this week and like Greene, was sad to see it over. Group hug

I am sad to see it end too, it has been very exciting reading the articles, seeing the banners, watching the raffle video.
Oh Yes, and let us not forget all the thumbs up and acorns we received, I am not used to that, and it has been a lot of fun receiving all the attention.
Wow! I am very spoiled and a happy camper right now. *Blush*

It was a lot of fun and so great to see all the interest. I'm already looking forward to next year!

Thanks, Sharon. I do hope a lot of people plant waystations. The Monarchs are sometimes few and far between but it always gives me goosebumps when I see one - and their caterpillars as well.
