What a spectacular list of donations for the NARR!

THANK YOU to all of the generous vendors. I love seeing vendors that keep coming back with donations time and time again (Santa Rosa Nursery, Brushwood Nursery, Garden Perennials, Perfect Plants, Hollingsworth Peonies, Mary's Garden Patch, and Victory seeds.....I'm talking about all of you!) What dedication and generosity!

...and I noticed a few new names (to me): Green Mountain Hosta, EasyDigging.com, and Mountain Crest Gardens that look like they are offering some great prizes, too!

And @bxncbx ....that is so generous of you to offer up some daylilies!

You guys are what makes the NARR go around. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

I just can't get over how many wonderful options there are for this NARR!

I'm putting all of my remaining acorns toward this--I managed 4 tickets, LoL!--and crossing my fingers like crazy, LoL! Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers!

I'll have to figure out how to get more acorns now. The only things blooming in my yard right now are things I don't know the cultivar names of. :-/ ....daylilies are a long way away from blooming here and my irises don't seem to want to bloom at all this year. Sticking tongue out Don't they know I need pictures for acorns? D'Oh! Goofy irises!

Deb, don't you ever want plants you can't find in person? I have that happen all the time, so I'm a mail order queen.

For folks wondering , or wanting to get more acorns..here's a suggestion. Go to your local Botanical Garden,Garden Show or Plant Nursery and take photos to put in the Data Base here. I carry my phone and pull up the plants that I see in the Gardens and Nurseries ( on the NGA data base) to see if more photos are needed. Oftentimes theres one of the flower only. For each photo you can get an acorn. If it's the first photo ever, you get 2! If you've never added a photo to the data base, it's easy! If you haven't looked at the Data Base..it's on the Homepage about halfway down , right under the 'Popular Pages' banner.

Great idea for growing the database. Remember to snap a photo of the actual label first, then it is much easier to ID the particular plant. Take photos of the leaves only and the whole plant to give an idea of the growth pattern. Usually there are plenty of portraits of the bloom, although if you have a phone while at the nursery, it's easy enough to check the database. I still use a camera.

Karen, my current focus is on native plants and I have lots of local nurseries yet to explore. I'd much rather buy plants in person that wait for dubious mail orders to arrive. Plus I'm not too jazzed about the US-only concept. So, nah to the raffle for me.
