It was so difficult to rank them. Each one was a #1 in it’s own merit – either for creativity or classisicm… there is not one of them that would not fit somewhere in my garden.

Congrats to those who have the confidence to submit their work!

Congratulations to all the winners.

I know how nice it is to be recognized by your peers and there is no greater reward.

To all those who didn’t win a prize, you are all still winners just for your participation.
