A Buchholz Beauty Pageant

January 1st - June 12th 2013 photo winner

We're nearly at the end of the calendar year and it's time for our photo contest. I have gathered my favorite plant images from the past six months and you can choose one, only one, that you consider the best. In the last contest I unwisely chose my favorite, and if you could guess which one, you received that photo. But why clutter the contest with my favorite, when it's your contest. So this time the winner will be selected from the image with the largest popularity, and one of you will be chosen at random to receive the prize.

Buchholz office wall

You could win a 16" by 24" print, mounted beautifully on a bamboo board, totally ready for hanging. You may cast your vote at info (at) buchholznursery (dot) com, not as a comment on this blog. If you do not win, you can order your favorite at $269, or for that matter, any photo from our entire website. I have a number of them in the office and at home, and they really pop off from the walls.
Contest closes at 4pm, Friday, January 3rd, 2014.

Good Luck.
