I just now about fell off my chair. I checked my email inbox before heading to bed. At the top of the list was an email titled "Lily Auction Image Contest." I had entered a few photos in the contest and figured it was just a courtesy note announcing the winners. I opened it up and let out an audible gasp as I read that I had won first place! I get to spend $100 on the auction at any time and on any daylily of my choice. WoooHoo!
Here is the winning photograph:


It even has a seasonal name: 'Cradle of Bethlehem'

Congratulations to Leslie Mauck (Lalambchop) and Sandy Perkins (Sandyp60) for winning first place, respectively, in the Daylily Garden/Landscaping and People in Garden/Landscaping categories. Thumbs up

Congratulations Larry - well deserved it's a beautiful picuture Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! I hope it looks as good in my garden next summer - I ended up splitting the one I purchased from you into two separate pieces - one for the prayer garden that had more than one fan (name was perfect) and one by my water feature (1 fan). Can't wait for it to bloom as it was one of my favorites! Again-congtats Thumbs up Thumbs up
