and a thank you very much to you, Julia. This contest sort of gave us all an adrenalin rush before having to settle into our homes nice and quietly, huh? Well, maybe not you cause you look like the busy type, right? and after tree-ing with Greg, not him either with all the relatives a-visiting... Big Grin

I'm not the busy type more the homebody type. I'm hoping for a warm up, weather wise, so I can get out and weed a bit more. Marilyn, did you post pictures to the contest and Bev how many did you enter? I think I had about 4 or 5 entered I forgot what I submitted. Whistling

I thought this photo was stunning. It took me a second to figure out what was hiding in the rain but even before I figured it out, I loved it!

Julia, no photos for me. I do not have the skill or confidence.

I Love to view all the many wonderful and talented works of all the others here on ATP.

When I post a photo it is with a bit of reluctance and used to illustrate a point. Maybe if I can get a better camera I might try next year.

Julia, what an intriguing photo of S. 'Grapetone'. I love this photo for the feeling of mystery it gives me. Covered in sparkling jewels. Love it.
