Buchholz Photo Contest



Christmas is upon us, and it seems that the past half-year rushed by at lightspeed.

It must be time for our biannual photo contest. I have gathered my favorite images from the past six months and you can choose one, only one, that you consider the best. 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.

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 12pm, Wednesday, December 30th, 2015 and the winner will be announced at 4pm, Wednesday, December 30th, 2015.

Good Luck.
