Thanks to all who participated in our July 1st – December 29th photo contest. There were an equal number of votes for Acer palmatum and Acer circinatum, and both of those were my favorites as well. I broke the tie by choosing Acer palmatum which was taken on November 10th, 2014 at the Portland Japanese Garden, and Karen H. was selected at random as the winner. She will receive a 16" by 24" print mounted on a bamboo board, ready for hanging.
Thanks again for the enthusiasm shown by many of you Flora Wonder Blog readers.
