Hurry up, David. The contest has been on all week and entry closes tonight. Hope you entered some pics!

Judging starts tomorrow. That means we get to see all the entries tomorrow morning.

Click on "Goodies" on the home page. It's the only Photo Contest going on right now. Last I looked there were 174 entries.

I had a really hard time picking which to vote for. They're all gorgeous, although there was at least one where I couldn't see the caladiums very well . Blinking Confused . . . maybe wouldn't vote for that one.

I liked the White one with the dark green and white Alocasia and what looked like a green and white Justicia with a yellow flower. Smiling

Oh, yeah, I think I voted for that one, too. It looked vaguely familiar and if my memory serves (not at all dependable) that may be a photo that Lin posted a while back on this forum.

Well, let's hope she wins!

Yeah, I've been wondering that myself. If we'd only get a few more thunderstorms, so it cools off a bit, I can maybe clear a space in the jungle for them.

This time of year Rolling my eyes. usually I'm only thinking about veggie seedlings, and such as far as planting goes. But most of my Caladiums started up early and are fading now, so maybe starting this new batch I'll have them looking good through the fall.
