Seriously HOW do they mess that up when my name was spelled (correctly and legibly) by me on my entry cards, AND the entry sheet AND my friend Paula TOLD THEM they were spelling it wrong while they were typing it in, and they ignored all of that? GRRRRR!!! If I find out who it was, they are going to get an earful. Still, I GOT TWO BLUE RIBBONS AT NATIONAL!


  1. Hey, Ann-Marie, you did all right with your two entries! Congratulations on earning blue ribbons on both of them! Good job!

    Wow, simply gorgeous horticultural specimen plants!

  2. Might the third best plant in show be S. velutina?

  3. Congrats! I have to say, before following your blog, I had no idea there were so many different kinds of violets. So pretty.

  4. <:O YAY!!! Congratulations Ann-Marie! WhooHoo!XD

    I am so glad that you won the blue ribbons! You did an excellent job taking care of those plants and even though they fell upside down and you did not enter all the plants you wanted to enter, you managed to save two of the best looking plants (I can not tell that they had an accident at all, they look flawless)and won! So congratulations Ann-Marie for your winnings!

    Also thank you for showing us your exciting adventure at the violet covention. I enjoyed all the pics of the judging of violets, the wonderful entries of all the violets, the best in show winners, and the wonderful people there. Thank you so much for showing us what goes on in a National Violet Convention. :)

  5. Hmm, funny. When I first saw your name on your facebook, I thought it was "Anne-Marie" for some reason. But I know now that it is Ann-Marie. They sound the same but totally different ways of spelling the name. LOL
