6th Annual Blooming Hall of Fame Photo Contest
CONGRATULATIONS to all our winners!
717 Entries, 4443 Votes, 17 Winners
The winners will receive a $25 Gift Certificate (by email) and a Gardener's Delight Gift Basket - ready for pickup when The Greenery reopens in March 2013. Also, as thanks for their participation, we will be sending each person who submitted photos a $5 Gift Certificate by email. Look for it in your inbox next week!
This year's contest saw so many amazing photos that the public voting was often very close between them. In fact, the "Best Fall Fair Vegetable" ended in a tie. The Greenery Family was delighted to see hundreds of worthy entries and had a hard time choosing their favourites too!
A heartfelt thank you again to everyone who submitted amazing photos and voted in the 6th Blooming Hall of Fame Photo Contest!
The Bloom of Perseverance: Special Mention
We would like to take a moment to give a special mention to Tannia, who submitted this photo of Hardy Hibiscus to us. While it was too late for the contest, we thought her story is inspirational.
"I have been battling breast cancer and recently returned home from the hospital. Attached is a photo of my favorite new flower ... Hardy Hibiscus. This bush was a gift from a dear friend to place in my healing garden that my husband created for me at the beginning of the season which is when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. This bush produced over 40 blooms throughout the summer, each the size of my hand!"
