Acorns..... they've all dropped months ago. It's just the way it goes with acorns. Female cones... that's mostly what's left.... contain the seeds. Animals that eat that seed to survive will be whittling away at our kodak moments. The other thing is.... female cones are usually... not always.... higher up in trees than male cones. That could make taking photos tough.
I really think this contest would be better later in the year even if stored photos are allowed and with or without a prize for it. If it were me.... and it's not... I'd run with October 15 through January 15 just because this is for acorns AND pinecones. Running with 90 days starting next fall would give willo plenty of time to research and buy that new camera she wanted and it'd give the rest of us time to start looking around and I dunno about you but... brrrrrr.... it's 4 by me right now.... I begrudge having to walk dogs at this time of year!!!
I've still got the $10 in an envelope in your box with your little owls and some silk plants... I was planning on handing the whole box to you on March 9th but.... it wouldn't be any problem at all dropping it in an envelope if you want it before then. And if for any reason there's not enough $$$ to get the single or the triple windchimes..... no biggie.... you could just ferret that $$$ away for another acorn and pinecone type contest.
