2nd prize - $60 Garden Express voucher - BC for "I'm Stumped ":

Special mention - The Estate for "Miss Pot's Porch" (a definite winner if the criteria was most pots!):

Image

Congratulations to midgin and BC (and TheE). It is always interesting with a new competition theme as you don't know quite what to expect and this one was no exception (though I think we all knew there would be a whellbarrow in there somewhere). The range of containers was extraordinary from raised vegie beds through to modified toy crocodiles! I hope you all had fun and picked up some new ideas along the way. Thanks to all those who entered and all those who posted such positive comments along the way. There are some interesting developments in the wings for future photo comps so keep those cameras at the ready...............

Personally, I always feel sorry for the judges - there were some fantastic entries. I don't envy them their task one little bit.

Having said that, again they made wonderful choices.

Looking forward to hearing how the winnings will be spent!
