Well, it’s been quite a contest, hasn’t it? Grumpians from around the world have wracked their brains and forsaken meals, bathing, and vampire movies to come up with the identity of Grumpy’s mystery flower. One of you has succeeded. And the winner is……
SCSue! She correctly identified it as an Everlasting Allium. You can have one of your own by clicking on this link: http://www.gardeners.com/everlasting-allium/37-972,default,pd.html.
For her outstanding efforts, SCSue wins 1 million yuros! Don’t spend it all in one place!
His Benevolence has decided to award prizes to two runners-up. First, UrsulaV for advising us of the proper botanical name, Allium metalfolium. Second, Tsanc, who suggested the flower was a naked painted lady. Who doesn’t want one of those? I know I do!
Our two runners-up each receive 50,000 yuros! Congratulations!
International law requires that transfers of such sums of yuros must be done electronically. So if you will each supply the Grump with your bank account number and any accompanying password, transfers will commence immediately. In addition, please be aware that the recent European debt crisis has caused the value of the yuro to fluctuate wildly. As of today, one yuro is worth -US$1.00. So I will need to collect $1 million from SCSue and $50K each from UrsulaV and Tsanc. I hope to hear from you soon.

Don’t forget! Tomorrow Grumpy will review his famous list of must-have manly, masculine, manful gardening gifts for Dad. You will thank me for my thoughtfulness.
