Hurray! Congrats to all the winners ... I know you will love the wonderful prizes!!

Best video ever ... fun to see both boys, even if the youngest didn't sit still for long. "Little Man" is growing up so fast and he does a great job as Raffle Boy! He might have to train his younger brother to take over the duties if the time comes when he is promoted to other jobs around the farm. Smiling

A very special congrats to Zuzu...for everything you do behind the scenes (Lord knows we have had many conversations trying to nail down certain cultivars and/or species names for database entry)...you truly deserve this.

I don't mean to slight anyone of the other winners here, but seeing Zuzu's name at the top of the list brought a little smile to my face. Congrats to all, looking forward to seeing what is left when it's my turn to pick from the prizes.

Thanks so much for the great variety of prizes. I'm delighted to have had the first choice. I chose the Oakes Daylilies gift certificate because I'm a comparative novice when it comes to daylilies. I have only a few and I don't know any of their names, so the more esoteric (and probably much more valuable) prizes would have been lost on me. I'll be ordering one of the collections and I look forward to something that promises to become a new addiction.

I also love my new name: Uzuz. Smiling
