Everyone'should imputed is greatly appreciated, but as it turns out, the pair made a ghost dragon! ^-^ A great new addition to the park.

Garrus - it worked! I'm now showing you as a friend in the Vale! I have visited your park - good progress, I must say! I like how your earth island is progressing. Everything is a work in progress and (for me) changes every time a new dragon or habitat comes out! Well done, you.

Not much going on here - another cold, windy day and back to work tomorrow. I did manage to get the kitchen window frame sanded and primed today...along with a few loads of laundry, I'll consider today a 'win'.

Take care all - back to dragons!

Yup, the Earth Island is the one I am happiest with at this point- the purples blend really well with the browns and greens. The Cold/Winter Island is my next favorite, because the Frostree planters are REALLY easy to work with. Might even have an Icy Torrent on the way, so hopefully that will spice up that island a bit. I think it will look much better once I actually have more than one snowflake dragon, but overall I am happy with that Island. Debating whether or not to throw the castle in storage to make room for a future ornamental or large cold habitat though, and the bottom two "squares" need some work. Didn't like how candied fences worked there, but if I use my standard Frostree planter steup they will hide the decorations in the middle. Maybe white cubes would work best.

Also, thanks for throwing up Panlong! Only getting bubbles so far, but that just raises the odd the next on will be a Panlong. Can only beat 50/50 odds for so long.

Had a dream the other night that you could breed and sell Trinkets for 25 gems each... I was sad to wake up from that. XD

Dragon Grower's picture

Evening, all! GPK - you are sweet to remember what I look like. Yes, hair is reddish, but my skin is really pale so the orange jer-sey (DRM - you're right - what a naughty word!) makes me look even more pale. However, I do wear it proudly regardless of how it makes me look! I was watching Eli play the other night and 'told' him to tell Peyton 'hey' for me...

DRM - Unfortunately, Snowpocalypse was limited and can no longer be purchased with IB's. He is also not for sale in the market, so unless I can breed him I'm going to have to wish for him. And that poses a question...if he's not for sale in the market, does that mean he can't be bred anymore? Hmmm, nothing but questions here.

It was a relatively productive day here; the kitchen window sill has been sanded and primed; ready for paint on Wednesday; and hopefully, I can start on the curtains Thursday.

I did let the feathered friends out today, but they sure didn't stay out long. By 3:30, even though the sun was out a bit, they were all indoors; so I put them away a bit early...depending on the weather tomorrow, I may or may not let them out since I work early in the day and don't get home until it's dark out. Hmmm, looking at the forecast, 50% chance of 'wintry mix' tonight and winds over 20 tomorrow...they will probably stay indoors.

Hey, guess what? I got my niece hooked on DV! She called me today and we talked lots of dragons. She is 12 and plays on her Kindle. How fun is that?

FP - Sherlock is back! Did you see the first of the season? Shocking! As for other TV, waiting for Suits to come back; since they took off Limitless and Forever, I'm back to watching just the NCIS/Bull on Tuesdays. Not much else on that I'm interested in. Although I will say that show "Timeless" was pretty good. Watch, they'll take that off, next.

Off with me; Garrus, I am now showing you as a friend in DV. You're park is coming along nicely; it took me almost a year to decide to go with the themes...there never seemed to be enough islands! I hope you continue to have fun in the game, and like DRM says, be patient. :)

You all take care, happy Dragon Dreams to all!

I'm going to go out on a limb and say as long as BEB is going they are all breedable. Don't give up just yet. :-) Check 2084, shows combos using snowpocalypse, so you can coop it. Good luck!

I wonder what the Epoch dragon would look like if it could reach Elder status. Would it turn back into an egg? Gotta love the lil guy. He's so darn cute!
And while I'm at it, does anyone else think the Flurry dragon looks like a poodle?

Garrus's picture

Since getting it, I felt it looked more like, well, a fluffy storm incarnate. If I had to compare it to an animal... I would go with an oarfish. They're long, pink, and are associated with dragons. If the flurry dragon was a more obvious water element that would probably be my first though.

Dreamn's picture

Interesting, now I have to look up oarfish, lol.

Edit: Quite a unique observation, Garrus. The movement when flying is more water-like and the colors are similar yet reversed to the oarfish. There are some interesting pics on the web. It's the largest boney fish known and was once thought to be a sea dragon.
On the other hand, when Flurry is grounded, it jumps and moves like a playful puppy.

Edit 2: We don't have a Sea Dragon. Perhaps you could write or message Backflip and request one? They could model it after the oarfish and make it a water element dragon.

LOL! Yes, Flurry does look like a poodle! I kind of thought the same thing when I finally got a Cotton dragon! As long as they keep making them look awesome (Mirror is still my fave on this game - he is so cute the way he turns around and looks at himself then screams!)...what will the wizards come up with next?

Off to work, you guys take care. Guineas told me to tell you 'hey' - they've been 'cooped' up (hee, hee) for two days because of the ice; I don't need any broken legs!

Take care, all, and I'll keep trying for Snowpocalypse...

Haha! I went to watch Mirror. Never had spent much time doing do. He goose steps, sometimes going backwards,looks at himself and nods. Every once in a while he'll look, then jump and scream. There must be a scary dragon playing tricks on our poor little Mirror. BFS sure has some creative gems hidden in DV.

I went shopping for a jack-et but couldn't find the one I wanted. I decided to go to the out-let mall and ended up with two Jer-sey hood-ies and ba-ags from co-ach and cha-nel! Had $50 left so got a half hour mass-age. Life is good!

As you can tell, I have too much free time on my hands while being snow bound!

I don't know if you've seen "This Is Us" on Thursday nights on NBC. It would be worth your time checking out On Demand to catch up. Great show! Glad Guineas are ok.

We had an ice dam building up on our roof. We were finally able to take snow off gutters when it warmed up so they could start to flow. Lo and behold there is a newspaper in the gutter. Gotta love the aim of the paper delivery person! Yesterday evening our neighbor knocked to let us know there was a problem out front. When we checked water was almost to his garage door and creeping up our driveway. Grabbed shovels and two neighbor boys and began making a trench down to the end of the street so it could head downhill to the storm drain. Pretty scary sitting in your home while a flood is starting out in your front yard! Turning cold again tonight so hoping we got all the ice out of gutters.

WOW SI, you've had a time of it, haven't you. LOVED the first post, did the LOL thing - how creative you are! Sorry to hear about the flooding after all the snow you've had - if it's not one thing, it's another, right? Hope all works out. How are you feeling, anyway? I know both you and Tuffy had quite the year; I wish you both good health in the new year. I have not seen "This is Us"...to be honest, it didn't look that interesting to me; but if you recommend it, I'll give it a whirl.

Well, I've had a guinea that refused to go in the Ghetto last night, so he spent it outdoors in 6 degrees. I opened up the south door today for a bit to try and coax him in, and I think he made it. I did five headcounts this afternoon so hopefully I haven't stranded him outside again for another night. We're supposed to have quite the ice storm this weekend; I won't be letting them out in that.

Not much else is going on; I still don't have Snowpocalypse but am continuing to try with everyone else's and my Epic dragons. Not too much time remaining, but I have yet to log into the game today (was at the library for awhile, then grocery shopping...just in case) and today is the free dragon - I hope mine is Snowpocalypse; I did get a twin Bloom from BFS during the last one.

So off for me; I need to check the gem target before I log on.

You all take care, stay warm (and dry).

Nope, no burning....alas...I think I'm going to have to 'wish' for this one. I can't seem to breed this little bug-ger (Just in case that's a ta-boo word, too). I've tried others' Snowpocalypse with my Apoc, Blue Moon, Victory, etc...still nothing. But I think there are like 111 possibilities so I don't think I'll get it before BeB is over. Oh well...you know, I haven't even checked the 'wish' list to see if it's in there...it's not in the market, but is showing as breedable in 2084. I'll go check that out....

We are doing quite well, thank you for asking. I'm still managing Lymphedema but at least I get a mas-sage from Tuff when needed! I do see the radiology oncologist Tuesday for another 3 month checkup and I'll see what advice she has for me. I'm so hoping she'll recommend a trip to Palm Springs!

Came up to cabin with Jeff and Logan again. I have never seen this much snow up here! We couldn't get up the drive so Jeff walked up and got the snowmobile and ferried us up. I was shocked to see snow as high as his deck. Tuff sent us up with his ice fishing sled he uses to carry his auger and all his gear; it was awesome for getting groceries and cooler up here! It is so very beautiful, though!.

The plow finally came down our street Thursday night so I believe I'll be able to use my car again. It's been captive in my garage for two weeks. Couldn't get out to gym so my treadmill has been getting a real workout!

Enjoy your weekend and happy breeding!

DG - I feel bad for you. :-( I know that I get really 'antsy' whenever a new Dragon(s) comes out...once you're in the DVFD, you want to stay in. Luckily, I earned the max each day...enough IBs to buy all the Event Dragons & Peds + 2 Seasonal themes.

SI - All the snow (18") here in town is gone. After the storm, the temps were down near zero or below but then it warmed up to the 40s (even had one day when it reached 51). Then it got cloudy & rained and as you know, the cloud cover kept the warm temps down on the ground...we haven't seen the sun in a week! The result??? 9 days after the 18" & sub zero temps, it's all gone! Friends of mine in a town at the base of the mountains got 5' and Aspen and Vail got 12', so much that I-70 was closed several times because of avalanche warnings.

That's some wild swings in your weather. We did get warm for a few days and it's freezing again now which is a good thing. Too many rivers in the Treasure Valley and flooding ensues when warming too quickly. Then again I don't understand why people build homes around flood and wildfire areas! Every year we have people in their big homes complaining that the city, county, state aren't doing enough to protect their homes when Boise River gets to flood stage!
I'm the same way about new dragons. I turn into a nervous wreck until I get it and burn again.

I finally got my free dragon, don't know how I got behind, but got Nosferatu! I've been trying my heart out for Prism to no luck but hey, I'll take a free Nosferatu.
DG - Since Snowpocalypse is an event dragon, wait until the event is officially over, i.e. the ice berry store closes. I'm sure he will be in the Well at that time. No guarantees but that's usually what they do. I haven't used my wish yet. I'm waiting on the 100 day wish to make sure I have one available for "emergencies". Then I'll get to choose between weather station and twilight tower.

If anyone sees my Cold Banner Bud please tell him to report to duty forthwith. I'm thinking he went for some magical cocoa to warm up. However, there has been quite a line of autograph seekers forming and they are getting restless. We don't need a snowball fight around the dragons, especially since the Snowpocalypse and Thundersnow dragons seem to becoming close friends.

Edit: He finally showed up. I warned him if there were any more extended breaks beyond the allotted time he would be cuffed to a Yeti for the remainder of his shift!

Wouldn't it be nice if we could rotate the habitats to make them face a different direction? I doubt that would be too hard to code. I would be happy if you could just mirror or flip the habitat. Just a thought. Totally off topic, sorry. I have ADOS (Attention Deficit Oooo Shiny!)

Thank you, as long as BEB is going all my parks are trying for it. I did manage one in one of my baby parks but not either of my main parks. (2 iPad, 3 Android)
As for rotating anything in Dragonvale, it won't happen. They have too many shadows already created that would throw things off. In Dragonvale World you can rotate just about everything. It makes it easier to arrange things "just right". Unfortunately, after playing DVW, when I switch back to DV, I want to rotate things, lol, argh! Love these games :D Oh, and 3 parks in DVW.

Finally got the little bearded dragon I have been trying to get. At least, I hope I got it, it's a 15:00 time with metal and mountain and none of the other possibilities can have that- I think. Still don't have that second Panlong, but with the results I was getting I think I need to wait until after the BEB finishes before I try again- I *really* don't want to get another aurora egg what with the time those things take to breed and hatch. Sorry about that DG, it really wasn't working for some reason. I was sure it was a 50/50 chance to get one when breeding two of the same.

Going to try for the leather dragon in the normal cave next, or the Epoch dragon if I can get to 25 before this ends. Earth Island is still my best Island, and I want to fill it up while I can. Even got a root dragon egg waiting in my gifts from my first experiments with Co-Op breeding.

Sorry to hear about all the snow. We had a brush with it this weekend, but by Sunday evening it was more or less gone. Car was frozen solid this morning though, a little parting gift from the wintry weather.

Edit: YES! Got bearded. I also MIGHT have my second Panlong thanks to you DG, if there are no other 36 hour incubation times for the Panlong mix... Right after I said I might as well wait until after BEB. XD

Speaking of that, mixed feelings about BEB being extended. At this point, I'm just going to go for century and garnet, since the latter is my mother's birthstone and I don't want to miss out on it. Might as well continue trying for another week with Century instead of doing any of the quad element specials. My luck with those tends to be... rainbow colored, if you get the drift.

Trying to work with my Fire Island, and I need some advice. Got a little corner on the right side, and I think it's coming along. Swapped out flower beds, barrels and olivine obelisks for the Tears of the Cataclysm linked by spooky fences surrounding the Horns of Sorec, and it looks nice. thing is, there are two more Tears a little below it, and I need to figure out what to replace them with- the obelisks just don't work. Could I try to get some Jet Dragon pedestals? Once I have the fire theme, it should look like *actual* obsidian, which would blend well with the theme, and the play of light underneath it should work to the setup's advantage. Could also use some general advice on whether or not I should replace the firework cauldrons with something else too, frankly. If you want to take a look but don't have me on your friend list, just ask and I'll post a link.

One of the great things about DV is that you get to pick exactly what you want your park to look like. We've all taken inspiration from others' parks; take a look around and see what strikes you. You've not been playing long, and you will find what works for you. No matter WHAT you do, your park will be your own, there won't be another like it anywhere in the Vale. I know it took me ages (and still does when I get a new island) to come up with exactly how I want my park to look. It will take time, but as you play longer, it will get easier...until you run out of room and beg BFS for another island! Good luck and happy decorating!

Evening to you all! Been a busy few days here with the ice and painting but back with you. It has been productive (out of the Vale) but still Snowpocalypse eludes me! I've been going back and forth between Apoc/Blue Moon/Victory/Electrum with others' SnoPocs but still nothing....I sure hope it will be ready to come my way after BeB! Between this and DVW, I've not been able to breed a single thing I need/want.

Well, let's see...the feathered friends survived all the ice, but they were not happy about not going outside for four days. They've been enjoying the outdoors, but we really had some thick fog today. Most of the ice is gone, and it was a great day for sitting by the fire and reading, but alas - no fireplace here (what??????) and much stuff to be done on a day 'off'.

Honestly, not much is going on here; just the usual. Nothing spectacular to report, just trying to get my dragons.

I hope you all are warm and safe and dry.

So excited! I finally bred Wavelyte after trying since the start of BeB. Now I have all 332 dragons and I am working on Pedestals. Can't wait for that egg to hatch (Gaia still has a day before I can reuse) and the dragonarium to breathe fire!

You are now a member of the DragonVale Fire Department (DVFD)!

Have you noticed your flaming Dragonarium?

How long have you been playing? It took me about 4 years to get 'em all. I know how you feel...like you won the Olympic Marathon. But now, you're gonna get anxious every time they release a new Dragon. You're gonna think "OMG, I just have to get this new one."

...has an iPad running on iOS 10.x? How has that affected your interaction with Friends...how has that affected getting new friends? I'm still on iOS 9.3.4.

I'm running iOS 10.2 on an ipad Air 1. At this time it doesn't matter which version you're using since friends can only be added through Facebook. As far as interacting, I can send gifts just fine as well as receiving them. They all have Norgards pic and I miss the personalization.
If you wish to trim your friends list you need to do so before upgrading. With 9 you can select who you wish to remain or not. With 10 your only option is to remove everyone.
I haven't noticed any problems with any of my apps due to 10 that weren't there with 9.

Thanks for the speedy reply...you're a pretty good 'service rep'. You would have been a great IS pro...OK, so I know that on occasion, I've received Gifts from you & I'm guessing you've received them back from me as well, right? So, it will keep all the friends I have now but if I want to add new friends I will have to do it on Facebook? I really don't want to be on FB...Was there anything you had to do to DV once you upgraded to 10.2? Could I upgrade to 10.2 and NOT open a FB account?

How does the FB interface w/DV? I assume that you have added new friends since upgrading to 10.2?

Thank you, always glad to help. Yes, I'm still receiving gifts and I thank you and all here who send them. Yes, you will keep the friends you have now. New friends will need to be added through Facebook until BFS creates a way to add them within their games. I don't recall having to do anything to DV after upgrading to 10 except maybe signing out and back in to FB.
Having your game linked to FB allows your friends to see you have the same games and now you can gift each other etc. depending on the game. It is also used as a means to back up your game, much like Game Center.
I have added a couple of friends through Facebook but I'm very picky who I let see my personal info. I was going to make a game only FB account then decided it was too much trouble. There are options under settings where you can select what each person can see on your page.

You do not have to open a Facebook account to upgrade to 10. I would locate your game ID and take a screenshot of it, just in case. Open DV, tap options, tap park ID.

Well, so much for DVFD! I was pretty sure there would be someone new after BEB! They are pretty cute, I must admit. Good Luck!

Still stuck in the snow here. 43 days with snow on the ground and it doesn't appear to going away anytime soon. High's in the 20's. Bummer.....

You have my sympathy. All that snow we got, followed by the sub zero temps, is gone but the mountains surrounding us are getting snow (from California) almost every day. Saw the other day that the snowpack for Northern California is over 200%...guess the drought is over for them...

Anyone have any glitches after downloading the event update? All the flying dragons seem 'choppy' not gliding like they used to...

SO - even though BeB just ended, I'm looking forward to this event tomorrow! I still don't have my Snowpocalypse but am trying hard for the three new ones released today...no wonder they put out an extra island! (OBTW - time for another one!). I do hope they release more new dragons and decorations for this one. Bless the hearts of those working at BFS - what a tough crowd we are (well, I am). I can't imagine what it must be like to have to come up with decorations, spacing, code, etc., to make everything as wonderful as they have.

SI - I can't imagine having as much snow on the ground as you do right now. Well, to be honest, the year I retired and came home, there was already 2' on the ground and I do remember the snow at over 3', with drifts over 5'. But the last few years here have been really mild. We did have snow last night and today but only got a couple of inches. The winds, however, have been terrible. Over 25 and expected to be gusty the rest of the week, which of course will drive the 'feels like' temp down to the lower teens. Then wham! Fifty degrees on Monday...I guess perhaps Spring is trying to show its face early?

Honestly not much else going on here. I did FINALLY finish the kitchen window; insurance guy is coming out tomorrow for water in the basement, and I'll be on a mission on Saturday to find some roller-shades for said kitchen window. I don't know why I didn't think of it before, but it is the perfect solution to keep out the low south-sun in the winter. Then all I have to do is make a valance for it.

Well, off to try more dragons! You all take care and I'll chat at you later!

I also heard Northern CA got enough precip this year to end their five year drought. To be honest I wouldn't want to go through what they are, looks very scary! We are 120% in Boise basin and that's good news if it doesn't melt too fast. I've just never before seen it on the ground in town this long. Big sigh!

DG
I would rather look at snow as put up with winds for any length of time. Funny, I just looked put my kitchen window and robins are passing through. It's not ours so I don't know where they're headed but they stop every year and 100's of them descend on feeders and pick all the berries off my pear tree. It's pretty cool to see and gives me hope that winter will eventually end!
We put in the cellular shades (honeycomb pull ups) and I really like them. But we still have the original Windows and needed something to keep out heat and cold too. Plus our windows are tall so I'd need a step stool to put roller shades up or pull them down! I don't know if you have bird issues but I noticed when we replaced the verticles with these shades I have more birds flying into windows!

No new dragons for me yet and the event is about to start! Gotta love the challenge...

They took away the 'spinning wheel', one of the better games for earning points if you could figure out how easy to spin the wheel and where to start from. Last event they took away the 'Name That Dragon' These two remaining are pretty hard in comparison. The Make-A-Match is do-able but the potential point reward isn't as large as the games they took away. You can get them all if you take the time to lay out a 3x6 grid and then write down the contents of each grid (what it is & for how many points), in the corresponding grid box as you tap on it, crossing out the matches as you get them. Be careful, there are some duplicate items but with different point amounts. I got them all in 6 tries...I had 4 tries left over so I played Dragon Drop with them and got 85 more Roses. Tap on the boxes 'systematically', by that I mean tap on a box only once until you know where it's match is. The object of your first couple of taps is to find out where things are. I forgot to look at how many points I had before I started the game but I think I got over 150 Roses.

Right off the bat, the first quest was for one of the new Dragons (a Candescent)...heck, they just introduced them yesterday...

There are 20 days in this event. All 4 new event Dragons will cost 20,490 Roses. Their Peds 2,655. This comes to 23,145 Roses. So, at 1,000 Roses per day, plus the days where they give us 'Double Roses' and other Roses which don't count against the 1,000 daily limit and the gift Dragon on Day 18, we should easily be able to collect enough Roses to get the 4 Dragons AND their Peds. But CAUTION! In the last Event, BFS added some additional Dragons during the event...spend those Roses wisely. :-)

*Methinks they are making it harder for us to earn Roses so that we will buy them with real $$$.

They haven't started hiding prizes yet but the the 'Girl with the Rose Cart' is there (1 Gem & 50 Roses).

If I recall correctly there are no hidden prizes for the rose event. For my main iOS park I will be 4,640 short, depending on the daily gifts. I will try to bank those before spending $. I have to have one of everything I don't already have in my main parks, including the 4th omnitat! I am excited to see that offered. I only see 1 new Aura dragon unless they pull a surprise. The Aura habitat is upgradable for a steep 150 gems to house the new Stoneheart dragon. It is a very nice looking habitat though. Stoneheart is also the most expensive dragon in the prize tiers, and will be my freebie for sure. In my main iOS park I have 2 aura habs, adults and babies, 300 gems...waaaah! I know, I'm not alone in this, but, ouch !!

GPK/DRM - you guys put a lot of thought in to counting those roses! Thanks so much for all the info!

Well - Snowpocalypse is MINE!!!! It was NOT in the market but did show up in the 'wish' list. I had a wish left from the last event so to me it was worth it. Prettttyyyy dragon!

I did manage to breed Iridescent today! Working on the other two and will try to spend my roses wisely this time!

DRM - did I understand you correctly that the Stoneheart dragon is for the Aura habitat? I see where there is not another Aura hab for grabs in this event; I may have to stow some dragons. That's what I did for the Snowbrush, Ribbon, Tinsel, etc. that just came out. I used an already existing Ornamental hab for them. Time for another new island!!!

Back to dragons with me - I hope you all enjoy the event! Happy breeding!

Yes ma'am, you'll need/want to upgrade your existing Aura habitat for 150 gems (still pouting over that!) for it to hold 1 additional dragon. It takes up more room too. But, hey, an additional omnitat! Woohoo!
Oh, and congrats on Snowpocalypse! :D

Keep an eye out for Gardenia in your vale. She showed up this morning in all my parks even though it wasn't time. I don't know if it was a fluke or intentional. Then at the noon reset she appeared again.

When attempting to do a RETRY in the Cooperative Breeding Cave, your Friend's Dragon changes to whatever your Dragon is. It has happened twice to me. the 1st time, I thought I had made some kind of mistake...the 2nd time I knew something had gone wrong in the program...let me know.

Yes, it's doing the same thing here. The name shows the same as your dragon but the picture shows their dragon to be the one you just used. It might show the name as Light but show the picture as Cold. Go by the picture.

I did buy the Omnitat....... I love that habitat so was delighted to see another available.

Fluorescent is my only success with the new three.

I Came up to the cabin with the boys again. Our air is so dirty in the valley that my sinuses were bothering me. The headache went away as soon as we left the gunk. We need another storm to sweep it out.

Good Morning! Well - I have managed to acquire all three of the new light dragons, plus a couple of peds. I've decided to save up all my roses until the end (well, I did get the additional Omnitat) to see what surprises they come out with. I don't want to be caught like I did trying to get Snowpocalypse!

Nada going on around here; just working/playing, playing/working, etc. Just wanted to check in with you guys and see what was going on.

I finally got Iridescent cooking in the co op by using yours with my air! Thanks! So that makes all three of the dragons but no peds yet. I guess I'll work on that tomorrow.

It's supposed to warm up and rain this weekend. I'm hoping the warm will stay so Sammy and Cooper can get haircuts. The haven't had one since just before thanksgiving and there's been no walk with all the snow and ice......poor boys.

I've just now realised that my habit of trying to open up the locked prize tiers as soon as possible might not be the best strategy...probably won't have time to gather enough roses for the Honeyglow! Currently have a little under 1400 of them. So now I'm wondering if I ought to try anyway — or save enough for Ambrosia, try for a Nectar (or ask for it in co-op), and hope for the best. :S

--
Give me a cuppa tea, a fluffy cat, and a book with dragons in it. I'll be content.

Dreamn's picture

I've learned to save up event currency until the last minute and then go shopping. Backflip loves to throw surprises into the mix during events. Honeyglow is showing limited but so far no time limit so don't give up. :-) Try to max out your roses before collecting gifts. You can save up to 7000 in gifts and then collect 1000 per day after the event ends. Anything over 7000 "banked" in gifts will be turned into treats along with any you do not collect or spend.

Edit: It now shows a count down timer for this weekend only. :-(
