Oh my goodness...this was an agonizing decision to make! I had such a hard time picking only two. I looked at flower photos all weekend, and wished I could pick more then just two. Everyone that entered did a wonderful job, and the photos were absolutely gorgeous! And of course, remember, just because you didn't win, doesn't mean your photo wasn't fabulous, and definitely doesn't mean I didn't love it, it just means that I only have two prizes...Anyway, after much consideration,Â the winners are...
First Place winner: Trudy P. Her orange poppies are beautiful! Trudy will receive a year subscription to Backyard Living magazine. See her winning photoÂ here, http://www.gather.com/viewImage.jsp?fileId=3096224744414215&memberId=255534Â
Second Place winner: Rick J.Â His Purple flower middle was stunning!!! Rick will get the Dictionary of Garden Plants book!! To see his winning photo click here, http://www.gather.com/viewImage.jsp?fileId=3096224744425815&iGrpId=3659174697248557
I hope everyone had a good time, and enjoyed the contest. I loved every minute of it, (until of course having to only pick two winners...) Trudy and Rick, you will need to send me a private message with your address, so I can get your prizes to you as quickly as possible!!! And I also wanted to let every one know that I am definitely going to do this again...I thinkÂ I might make it an annual contest, (of course I will start it a lot earlier next year!) Thanks again to all who entered!
