Day 360 - Let the Countdown Begin

I have to be honest with you (ok, I've probably been a little TOO honest with you over the years) but I'm feeling a little superficial. As I sit here writing about the AWESOME countdown to day 365 and the big Giveaway, I'm thinking about my precious daughter-in-law. Alexandra, the first of my two daughter-in-laws, has a countdown going of her own. Except hers carries a greater weight of significance than my silly little countdown. You see, in 49 days her darling husband, who is also my darling son, will be returning from 8 months of military duty in Afghanistan. So I'm thinking that my little flower container countdown will mean that in reality, at Day 365, we're only 44 more days away until Jonathan comes home.
And the hint for today's Proven Winner's plant for you to guess - the cultivar name of this plant is also the name of this darling son's favorite fruit when he was growing up.

First and foremost, wonderful news about your son's return and give him a BIG thank you from me! A stab in the dark, watermelon coleus?
