Hello everyone!

This is a contest that I am hosting along with @zuzu. The rules/directions and the start and end date of the contest are all listed below.

Rules/directions:
1. Only post pictures of your dahlias.
2. You will make a post with a dahlia picture in it, and people will like your post (of course, only if they like your photo).
3. Per post, you may only have one picture (so that if people like your post it won't be confused on which image they like.)
4. Every Sunday, either @zuzu or I will post the current standings (#1-#5).
5. By the end of the contest, whoever has the most liked post places in first place and receives 50 acorns, and second place wins 40 acorns. Third place wins 35, fourth wins 25, and fifth place wins 20 acorns. You will receive a tree-mail (t-mail) if you place in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th place. Also, 150 acorns are supplied by admin (thanks admin!), and 20 acorns are supplied by me.


Start date: 5/22/2020 @ 1:00 p.m. | End date: 7/22/2020 @ 1:00 p.m.

If you have any questions, please ask! Other than that, have fun and good luck!

Just so everyone knows, the dahlia pictures don't just have to be from this year. Enter your dahlia photos from all times!
