Well we have another winner!

Congratualations, Nancy (retsec), for being the 10th person to join! Remember that one? lol...Finally a winner for that one!!! I will be mailing your prize out soon!!!

Josie was a close guess for kitty's name J*O* are correct for the first 2 letters. So keep guessing hehehe!

Bengal and burmese were great guesses I would have guessed those right off. So the full breed doesn't start with 'B'. The half breed starts with 'B' I will post pictures maybe this will help get some more winners!! Thank you all for guessing!

It was a little hard pairing everyone up I tried to to match partners with requests and to not repartner people who have already sent to each other. If anyone has an issue with partners email me privately maybe we can work it out. I swear everytime I tried to partner I got myself lol. I would count and there was only 9 people where is the 10th ohhh me dummy! Then I would have to start over. We got home last night at 3am I showered and went to work and came home and worked on the partners I haven't slept. I really hope there isn't a faux pas somewhere here!!!

I wanted to get this post out I know that everyone is anxious to get going I will neaten it up soon. I haven't even went out and looked at the garden after 5/6 days!!!

trailing Violet- I'll give you a few leaves to propagate, babies appear with in weeks after

planting leaf, repot when babies are dime sized.

This violet trails (has multiple crowns) and fills a pot really nicely.

Optunia Cactus pads- grow outdoors or in pots, survives outdoors/Chicago winter year after year! Unrooted freshly cut pads. My cactus garden is in bloom now (yellow blooms) and the cactus multiply quickly. Pads root with in a week or two. Place directly in soil or ground.

Jade, regular

Mini Jade (Baby jade)

will send fresh cuttings from either/both Jades

Burrow tail (Fresh cuttings) have it in a hanging basket, very lush fat little tails!

Old Woman cactus pup (still attached to the parent plant, will be freshly seperated before shipping) few inches big. Lightly hairy.

2- taller skinny cactus (thorns look like little spiders crawling) little larger than a finger. Several years old, 7 approx.

2 small tiny baby cactus grown from seed, very small, 3 years old.

Yucca, white baby (growing in between my cactus garden and needs to be removed ASAP) small, but established. Baby...

Hoya publicalyx cutting, freshly cut from the plant. The hoya divided into a few clumps, will send one unrooted clump. Roots directly in soil, might have 5 leaves (approximate).
