Smiling Smiling Smiling I'm just grinning from ear to ear and NOT because I'm the 6th place winner ... that's just icing on the cake! The joy of getting to see those sweet children (and Dave too!) is what makes me smile! I cannot believe how quickly those children are growing up ... daughter sitting right next to Dad, looks just like her mama. Y'all are just a fabulous family and I'm so appreciative of the work you do with this website and your family ... it shows what teamwork is all about, both family and business! Thumbs up

Once again, THANK YOU to all the wonderful Vendors who are so supportive of the NGA! I encourage everyone to place an order at any of their webstores, you won't be disappointed in the plant(s) you order and receive and you will experience the great customer service of each and every one!

P.S. I hope the Whitinger family had a wonderful Florida vacation and that you didn't encounter any of the rain we've been having lately!

Congrats Everyone!

Congrats to all of the people that did win! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

...and I love the still image for the video (with Dave and his little one turned toward each other and laughing" -- too cute! Thank you for hosting this, Dave!

And another 'Thank you' to all of the great vendors! Lovey dubby

My fingers are crossed that next time I win a prize. I seem to keep winning the Oakes Dalilies...maybe I'm only meant to win when they are a donator, LoL! I've won daylilies from them twice now. This was such a great lineup of prizes this time around, it's going to be hard to match that next month, but I look forward to seeing what is offered next month!
