CANDY COLOURS
DON'T STOP BELIEVING
GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE
QUINTESSA
ZLATOVLASKA

I agree. We all order such different ones.

Might as well get the rest out of my system:
Stout:
Ancient Secrets
Backdraft
Burseeno Graphic
Cuz Ur Myon
Different Take
Gloriafied Glenn
Special Blend
Sweetwater Pie Burns

That bunch has many I am in super love with!

And finally Iris Sisters - where they do not include a Burseen as surprising as that may seem:
Black Olive
Cafe d'Amour
Chestnuts Roasting (finally!)
Electric Candy
Haunted Heart
Mysterioso (all increases belong to Rob)
Strawberry Shake (yay)
Tuscan Glow (oh oh oh)
Volcanic Glow

I haven't made any orders yet, but will most likely only buy new releases, unless some of my wishlist that I couldn't locate in the past show up somewhere.

That would be the same for me, Jan -- but there are some oldies but goodies that I still want. Michigan Pride is an example. Smiling
