I am loving all the shrubs and flowers we get with each step of the quest. And comes with all colors unlocked!

Great, another chance for me to not get the hotdog costume (third one now?). Not that I really care; I know I'd never use it, but it still burns my completeist butt a tiny bit. The flowers are nice, though

Yes, and don't you (sarcastic voice) love that they increased how many gnomes, chiller towers, drinks trays, etc. you can have now? Not that I need all these extras for my one measly lot. It must be they wanted to offer a change from all those duplicate spins.

I REALLY want them to eliminate duplicates. It could be simple to program. Instead of a consolation prize, you'd just get a free spin. Then, if you played long enough, as the event repeated, you'd eventually get the items you hoped for. Or the colors you wanted. Or the other parts of the set. (I had 3 tables and one chair, the first time I did the event.)

Plus the object cap has not been upped. If I want to place one or two of the new flowers I have to remove other items :roll:

I know. Last spring when I wanted to put all my daffodils out, the walls and tabletops got bare. I even removed some windows. Apparently some items are more "item count" than others. Taking one out does not always let you place a new one. Some players said doors and windows equal about 5 small items, for example.
