Great pics everyone!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Many thanks to Bluestone Perennials for hosting this great contest! Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up

Congratulations to the winners! It's always such fun to view the beauty seen through other members camera lenses; your winning photos are amazing! Thumbs up

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest, for sharing your beautiful photos and giving us all a peek into the great plants that grow in your part of the world! Selecting favorites is always difficult; it's almost impossible to narrow it down to just three favorites when there are so many quality photos to choose from! Lovey dubby

Also, a big thank you to the Whitinger family for this amazing gardening site of sharing, learning and friendship! Thumbs up Lovey dubby
