End of Summer Red Star Contest

All right everyone, let's see those roses, dahlias, runner beans, pumpkins, or whatever other plants or flowers you've been admiring the last week or so.

The contest is open to anyone who does not currently have a red star*. The contest will close on September 1st, at 7.00 pm Pacific Daylight Savings Time.

Photos should be the work of the poster...

One entry per member, please.

East Hill

*All right, open to all members, and those already with a red star may give to the member of his or her choice .

This would be far more socially acceptable than what I had in mind.

I have to go into the desert and go plant searching now. There is a lot of cacti here that's all I can think of.

Can it be open to donating members as well? If someone who already has a red star wins, they get to choose who to give the star to? I want to take pics of flowers, too!

We for some reason don't deal with late season flowers, however.com we've been growing these for several years now...here's a pic from a jeep ride a few weeks ago.



or how about a shot off the back deck...not flowers but somewhat ourdoorsy.

You can play--I edited my rules so that members with a red star can enter, and donate a star should they win .

I don't know about switching photos...let me think that over .

Bringing cute kids into the photo is cheating .

But the shot off the back deck is very nice .

I took a day off my bike on Saturday to go for a hike with my son and these are the "plants" we see...




...then we used this plant to get across the river as the bridge was washed out last winter...
