And the Winners Are...

And the Winners Are....
Thanks to everyone who left a comment entering Happiness Farm's fabulous giveaway of two $63 gift certificates.

The two lucky gardeners chosen...by the old-fashioned method of reaching into a hat and pulling out two slips of paper...are

Joseph Evans who said
" I have been in Florida full time for 22 years now
and one of my first visits was to see the caladiums in Lake Placid.
One of my favorite variaties is the lance leaf kind in the Florida sweetheart and the rosalie."


Amy Parnell who said
"It is definitely difficult to choose one favorite Caladium variety, but I think I have to go with Miss Muffet Dwarf. Beautiful!"

Note: The winners must claim their prize within 14 days of this date in order to be eligible to receive the gift certificate.

Congratulations Joseph & Amy! If you'll both email me your mailing address, I'll get those gift certificates in the mail.

Also, it would be great if you both would both email photos of your new caladiums in their full glory to me this summer, and I'll post them for all to see. It would be fun to see your results.

And, once again a BIG thank you to Happiness Farms, Inc. for their generous giveaway, and to Ashley for all your help.

YAY for Joseph and Amy! Can't wait to see how they use them. Mine are coming up just now and giving their wonderful color to the garden.

What a treat for Joseph and Amy! I wonder if Caladiums will show up early like everything else this year?

Susan, the orange flowers you admired on my blog header at Seedscatterer is Flowering Pomegranate/ Punica granatum 'Madame Legrelle' -- a plant so old that nobody grows it any more. It's bare in winter, boring green the rest of the year except for a few weeks in spring when it has those beautiful orange and white carnation-like flowers and shiny orange buds. It makes no fruit.
