Here they are, the ones with soil are mine, the new package is the Surprise Item! I guess they call them waterproof because they come with the tray underneath to catch water. Ptilda, I have some good surprise items for the next bids! I love surprises ;)

Sundance, WY(Zone 3b)

WOW! Awesome bids peeps! Mechelle will have a very hard time deciding! Good job, seray. I know she wants daylilies! Sneaky! LOL!

Spooner, WI

Seray, that was NOT nice! I'm affraid I don't have any way of competing with that bid this year... maybe next year :(

Sundance, WY(Zone 3b)

I can't compete with that either, ptilda! Shoot, I want to win seray's bid! LOL

Middleton, TN(Zone 7a)

Wow, you guys are so awesome! I have some really good surprises and seeds to add, but will do it in the morning. I shopped this afternoon and then came home and worked in the yard until dark and to be honest, have been feeling sick since I came in and showered. I think I drank too much water.. I will be back here bright eyed and bushy tailed in the morning you can believe it! xoxo Mechelle

Sundance, WY(Zone 3b)

Get some rest, Mechelle. Don't want anymore peeps here getting sick! Have a good night!

Fair Play, SC(Zone 7b)

Ptilda and skellogg, you don't know what Mechelle will pick, I wouldn't back out or jump out too soon. Everyone thought their bid was too small on one of my auctions too but that was the one seed they had that I really wanted. i picked it and she was amazed. There was some good bids and anyother time probably would have chose them, but a friend was wanting those seeds real bad, so I got them just for her. Bid what you have and can, you never know.

Spooner, WI

FYI, Here's a chance to get some interesting DL for VERY inexpensive!

Mechelle, I should win the auction just for pointing this out to you! lol


Fair Play, SC(Zone 7b)

Yes Mechelle, You get some rest, you got a big decision this week-end. Picking the winner(mine). Hahahahehehe.

Fair Play, SC(Zone 7b)

Ptilda is kissing up, now. Not fair.

Spooner, WI

Hey, all's fair in love & flowers... isn't that how it goes? ;)

Fair Play, SC(Zone 7b)

I'm going to tell Arejay! there.

Sundance, WY(Zone 3b)

So true! The auction I won had tons of stuff, but what I really wanted was the yellow morning glory seeds, and the climbing bleeding heart seeds. All that stuff, but you never know! LOL!

Sundance, WY(Zone 3b)

You kids play nice! Don't make me stop this car!
