Once again, I'm taking a chance on this raffle, but I am the world's unluckiest person. I never win anything I
register for! Sighing!

Me too. So you are not alone. But it is fun to participate. And many of the items wouldn't do me much good either due to freight issues or the plants could not possibly live here. I decided that were I to win I would keep what I could use, which is actually a fair amount, and have Dave give the rest to the next person in line. That seems fair.

Very fair indeed, Mary. I'd love to win the Oakes Daylily prize and would be delighted with Annie's Annuals and Perennials.

Whether I'm a winner or not, I enjoy participating and love to watch the drawing. That is a prize in itself. Rolling on the floor laughing

I didn't mean my post to sound like sour grapes at all, but it would be nice to win just once!

I wish everyone good luck in the drawing.

Well I better win again this time. I caught the plane from Heathrow to get my prize, but got the wrong flight, and finished up in Iceland. Not many flowers here. So I better win enough acorns to get my flight back to London. Hilarious! Good luck to everyone. Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

And thanks to Wes (and others), I could enter a not-a-raffle and see if my bad luck holds :-)! Thank You!
