Thanks, hava. Fall in this part of the world is just flat-out gorgeous.

Great shots, havalotta! (As usual.)

It has been a slow couple of months for me, but I just might have an entry or two from yesterday if I ever get around to posting them.

pawprint 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place prizes for November POM***

How about 100 wild geranium maculatum rhizomes for 1st place.~November 2013 Photo of the Month Entry Thread~-wildgeraniums-026.jpg
50 wild geranium maculatum rhizomes for 2nd place.
25 wild geranium maculatum rhizomes for 3rd place.

I mentioned these prizes to Sage, but she was on her honeymoon at the time and probably forgot, so I'll just blurt this out there:

this is what I offer to ship to the winners of November POM. The rhizomes vary in size, and I'm not positive they are all wild geranium, but pretty sure. I'll be cleaning some overgrown honeysuckle down in the bottoms and the wild geraniums are fairly easy to find, I'll be selecting some from various areas so that my wild population shall not be damaged. It is just that I would like to share 175 of these things, and I don't mind doing a little work to do it. Once I get em cleaned & washed, I'll give em all a 10% bleach soak, then rinse a couple times more. Pop the quantity into the bag, add a little moss & water, seal & ship to the winners if they don't mind sending me their mailing address. I looked at the UPS website and I couldn't find any restrictions on shipping this type item. If any of the winners would rather have~November 2013 Photo of the Month Entry Thread~-latemay2013-007.jpg mayapple rootlets (Podophyllum peltatum), make that known to me and I can make that change for whomever. This is a one time offer, the ground may soon be frozen soon! These type plants are woodland perennial and generally exist very close to the top of the ground. They prefer a moist well drained dirt.

***Also this offer is primarily subject to any rules that Sage (Judge), or the Wildlife Gardners Administration seek to impose, because Sage hasn't returned an answer to me to give away this type prize, I'm not sure it is within the WG rules of conduct.

I encourage all members including all new members to submit photos for this contest.

I think that is very generous. My concern is that, although wild geranium has a wide native range, mixing local populations with populations from extreme distances doesn't seem like a good idea to me. I'm trying to keep things as local as possible.

I'm not sure what other members think...but I think finding out how detrimental that could be to other native populations should be determined first.

I hope this isn't taken the wrong way. You are very kind to offer such huge quantities of a beautiful native.

So THAT'S WHY you had said this....

You were doing a lead in and with Sage being gone It wasn't brought to anyone's attention.

I'd take the May Apples in a heartbeat but how would one preserve them over Winter.
We're and I'm sure others are already "Frozen in solid!" A Spring shipment might work out better.

pawprint dapjwy & havalotta make a good point...

...so of the top 3 winners..., I'll make an addendum to the prizes offered, the contestants choice, rootlets as mentioned previously, or I'll send you a check for $9.00 which is the expense I would expect to pay to the freight company. This way if the money is chosen by the contestant as a prize, ~~~for whatever, or no reason at all~~~, all I have to do is send the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place winners a prize check of $9.00.

If a winner decides to have their prize rootlets shipped at a later date, (like Havalotta just mentioned, her ground is frozen) if I'm still alive, I will ship the things at the time the winner decides. If a winner decides 100 rootlets is too much for them to use wisely, no problem...tell me how many you actually want, up to these amounts: 1st (100), 2nd (50), & 3rd place (25).

If a winner decides they don't want the $9.00, nor the rootlets being shipped at their convenient time, I could donate the $9.00 value to the Wildlife Gardeners organization.

One way or the other, if you place in this contest {times running out folks, get your pixs in quick} I'm going to try to make your efforts for submitting such fine pictures just a little bit worth it.
