Now I know what you are talking about Susie - you mean active posts don't you? Before I wondered why you would 'bump' something that was an announcement and therefore didn't slide down the page!

It's all gone strangely quiet.

I hope it's because you're all writing your magnum opus(es). :lol:

If not let me know and we can start the voting maybe next week instead.

OK folks, there have been no new posts for a week now, so I'll close entry on Monday morning and start the voting.

(It's maybe not a bad thing - I fear I may have to post to the States so the more time the better, sshhh :iconbiggrin: )

:blob: Right folks it's time to vote. :blob: Voting will continue until Friday night so we can get prizes posted early the following week.

There are three prizes - Big Al has kindly offered some candles and melts :cheers: . I will provide a small selection of GA products and I also have a book The Ultimate Container Garden (with a couple of soaps).

I'm not really sure how to divvy up the prizes, I think they're all equally good, so maybe the winners can decide among themselves - with one proviso. If any of our non-UK members when then I'll post to them - so my prizes only if your overseas please :iconbiggrin:

I think we've had some splendid entries and choosing's going to be really hard. Thanks everyone.

(Oh and spitfire, I think your second entry trumped your first by a long way so I've just put you in once. I don't think it'll scupper your chances somehow :roll: :lol: )

I'm surprised there were only 8 entries - it seemed like more!

That's odd, I will mention it to John as it may be another glitch from the forum update!

I've just tried too, I don't think I did anything wrong setting it up :dontknow:

There were nine entries MMM, but 2 were from spitfire - I only put her in once - I think she may do quite well anyway if the previous posts are any indication! :lol:

That's a bit mean because there are some really good entries there and no rubbish ones. :( :( :( But that's your opinion I guess, I have other favourites and I don't know which one to vote for. I think this time I might vote for myself! :iconbiggrin:

MMM - I've just counted them again and can't find other entries. I can't work out where I'm being mean :oops:

If you can find anyone I've not included let me know, my intention was not to miss anyone out. If you like I can put spitfire in twice, but I still don't think it will alter anything.

Please advise - it's supposed to be a pleasant event not something to cause anyone grief!

I mean this bit
I think she may do quite well anyway if the previous posts are any indication!

which I took implied that the rest of the entries weren't much good. :(

I didn't mean that you'd missed any out! Just thought that perhaps you should be impartial.
