|Winners: Barbara & Lily Good going you two!|
I thought it would be fun to share a little bit about myself in a fun contest. I will be awarding a small box of three lilies to the winner of this contest. These will be mailed to the winner, free of charge in October.
Lilies up for the contest winner are:
1 Rosella's Dream (an asiatic lily bred by Warren Sommers)
1 Momentous (4n asiatic bred by Buggy Crazy Lisa Hunt)
1 Time Zone (an OT )
Winner of the contest must be a Lily Cubit member and reside in the US (sorry! I don't have the permits required for abroad shipping).
These are questions about me. One guess per member. All answers must be correct (it's multiple choice). The first person to answer all correctly will be the winner of this box. If there is no winner in one week, members may be granted a second try. I have no idea how this will go, but I thought it would be a fun way to get to know each other better.
1)Who have I been listening to most on my iPod lately?
2)What is a stress in my life right now?
a)my gardens need weeding
b)I'm growing the lilies that will be used in my sister's wedding
c)it might frost any day now
d)the woodchucks that have taken habitat in my back yard
e)the outdoor cats are pooping on my lily seedlings
3)Who is my favorite actor and has been since I was 12?
4)How many cats do I have?
5)What is my favorite TV show?
a)So You Think You Can Dance
b)the Wisconsin Gardener
c)Dancing with the Stars
d)the Young and the Restless
e)The Good Wife
6)What type of lily is my favorite?
f)are you kidding? I love all lilies!
7)If I were to follow only one sport, what would it be?
Good luck! No cheating Have fun! We had a good laugh here creating it.

|Ohhhh, not bad Moby 3/7...and I'm not telling which ones are right, but I bet you know You did pretty well. I think some of my answers might surprise you, especially you. |
Thanks for playing. While I am waiting for lilies to bloom, I thought it would be fun.

lily freaks are not geeks!

|Give it a try Anthony, Nobody has won yet. I just wish I could send you the prize, but I can't because you are out of the US. But I bet I could send you some nice seeds instead! Take your guess.|

|PEOPLE: Get busy with this, I don't want to have to reapply and try to guess which two I got wrong then getting right ones wrong!|
Jun 20, 2011 11:42 AM CST
|Maybe it wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be. Who would have thought having a contest tied with free lilies could ever be a bad idea? We still had a great time here putting it together. In fact, my daughter Cubit members are dying to play!....only they know the answers. |
I was thinking about letting you guys guess one more time, since I haven't seen much activity here. And I will sweeten the lily box with a surprise addition....sweeten the pot, couldn't hurt, could it??

|2/ 7 Mike. It's kind of interesting to me the responses. It's actually the most fun....to see what kind of persona I exude. |
One hint: Nobody has gotten the actor right.
Tracey gives all current guessers (anyone above this post) one more chance at it. Guess again...somebody is bound to get 100%.
Jun 20, 2011 6:34 PM CST
|Nothing to lose by guessing so here goes...|
Jun 20, 2011 6:50 PM CST
|Barbara, you're right up. there 3/7. Thanks for playing. You can guess another round too, if you want.|
hint: no one has the actor right, Danielson.
Jun 20, 2011 7:19 PM CST
|Round 2: |
Jun 20, 2011 7:59 PM CST
|4 of 7....yeah...getting closer|
hint: the show I have watched since I was 5, though many parents might not agree that this was a good idea....

|Lily! You only got one wrong! Guess again. You're one away from being the winner. You should guess again....you're so close. I will tell you that the one you got wrong was in a hint. If you think about it, you'll get it. |
I want somebody to win!

|I must have gotten about one line off...Lily WON ! Barbara you were so close!...So I am sending you BOTH a box...if you want those lilies. Just send me your addresses, so I know where to ship them this Fall. |
Thanks for playing....
1) e)Enrique Iglesias -though there are other favorites in my music taste listed, like most of what I listed, I have had the Enrique hits playing most often on my iPod recently. My kids would be the first to complain about it though.
2)b)I'm growing the lilies that will be used in my sister's wedding
Last year when my sister got engaged, she knew she wanted lilies in her wedding, but not the Stargazer type. Her favorite lily in my garden was Salmon Star, so she asked me what the chances were of Salmon Star blooming on time for her wedding. I bought 40 Salmon Star lilies and divided the lilies out, so that there could be about 13 at each place. We need 7 to use in the bouquets safely. We are 2/12 weeks out now and at this time it is getting tricky. One of the places is a professional cut flower grower and I think he knows a lot of tricks. Mine might be slightly behind, I don't know. Needless to say, I want it to turn out and it is getting a bit stressful at this point.
My entire bedroom was wallpapered with this guy as a teenager. I met him twice in 1996 on an Off Broadway Musical. He has always been a stand up guy and there is plenty to admire. He wasn't a wild guy. Just plain old Ralph, which never seemed plain at all to me
4)b)3 Though only two are pictured on my avatar, I actually have three. They just aren't all together that often to get a nice threesome picture. Here's my missing guy, Mocha.
5)d)the Young and the Restless I remember my dad coming home for lunch as a teacher and my parents watching this show. I have followed it for as long as I remember. I don't watch much tv, but I will say that Dancing With the Stars was right up there this Spring when Ralph was chosen to be on.
6)f)are you kidding? I love all lilies!
You all know that I can never pick a favorite. They all inspire when they bloom...and we love them for that.
7)e)womens basketball It makes the winter go by so fast and the pace is great. My family can all enjoy going to the games together. And we love cheering for the Wisconsin Badgers Women's Basketball Team.
So now you know a little more about me...I'd love to hear more about you guys!

|Wow! Thanks Tracey!...and I'm sure I speak for Lily when I say of course we both want those lilies!|
Rosella's Dream is very pretty
ANYTHING from Buggy is a treasure
And Time Zone is one of the few I ordered more than one of for this year, so it goes without saying I can't wait to see it bloom and will welcome another one.
Santa Rosa with 7 blooms and 3 more to go. This was a single, new bulb last year which bloomed. Overwintered in a refrigerator from October to March.
Just a few currently blooming
Looking pretty healthy...Yes, you can grow them in pots.
