Hers looks almost tropical to me!

It must be nice to live so close to such large body of water. (That is from your home area, right?)

Yes it is....Right out back matter of fact.
I watch the sunrise almost daily with a hot cup of coffee cupped in hand. Once in a while a real pretty one makes its debut. Thank you all.

I knew you had a lakeside view. I thought it must be your own view. ~smile~. Nice view and nice photo ops.

Congrats to both dap and Hava! They were both beautiful shots, and I agree that I wouldn't have Sage's job for anything. WGs are all great photographers!

Yes, I don't know how she does it...but I think we are lucky to have her. Thanks for all you do with the POM contests, Sage.

Yes we do! ...And we are lucky to have so many members documenting the biodiversity they see (and hopefully grow and encourage to their own yards)...and documenting them with such great photography skills.

Wildwatchers Prize offer ~November 2013~

Quote:
1st place-100 wild geranium maculatum rhizomes
2nd place-50 wild geranium maculatum rhizomes

If any of the winners would rather have mayapple rootlets (Podophyllum peltatum), make that known and I can make that change.
Another option to the choice of rootlets as mentioned ... I'll could send you a check for $9.00 which is what I'd expect to pay for shipping.
If a winner decides they don't want the $9.00, nor the rootlets, I could donate the $9.00 to the Wildlife Gardeners organization.
First place winner Dapjwy:
Quote:
Chose another option...To give away his prize to another member at WG that is willing to accept the prize.~~~which is Ok with me. ~Wildwatcher~
2nd place winner Havalotta:
Quote:
Ooooooo I'm going to go with door #1 "The Mayapple rootlets" My very own miniature primal forest! THANK YOU!
~Havalotta~

All right!
Since Dapjwy's so kind-heartedly gave his winnings to another, I've chosen to present to him a certificate to remember his win.
