I Won First Prize!

Hello dear ones,

Oakes Daylilies has every year a photo contest.  I'm so happy that I won last year's (2012) contest!  I received the news from them in the month of December.  It was a gift sent from God, and I tell you why.  In the month of December 2012,  I fell and broke four ribs, I was very sad not able to work or do the things I always do.  Thank goodness I had all my Christmas decorations done then, and I was just finishing doing all the mulching for winter.  And talking about mulch, that was the reason of my fall.  I was pushing the big trailer that we use to carry mulch back where it belongs, the trailer got stock with the ground and I was walking very fast, so down I went right on top of it and I hit the ground so hard that I ended with four broken ribs.  So now you know why this prize is a gift sent from God, in my sadness time came this well received gift. I won first prize in the category of flowers with animals.  And the prize was a $200.00 certificated to use it at their nursery.  This past summer we had the privileged to go to their nursery and spend the certificate in beautiful perennial plants and more daylilies.  Can't wait to see all those perennials coming back in the springtime!  So here it is the winning photo.

  1. Oh my!!! I can see why you won!!! What a gorgeous photo!!! Thanks for putting a smile on my face this morning. Blessings come in the most amazing ways.

  2. A Well Deserved Congratulations! Your cat is a charmer and your photos are just beautiful! So sorry to hear about your injury. I can imagine the win lifted your spirits- Isn't it funny how sometimes good things happen just when you need them!

  3. Dearest Wendy,
    Not all years are equal and it does set us quite back if we are kind of de-activated for some reason. But yours was only a matter of time to heal and get rid of the pain; nothing dramatic or life threatening. You won with a fabulous photo of your lovely cat Sir Rupert! He is pristine.
    Wishing you and yours a very Happy Christmas period for 2013.

  4. Congratulations on the well deserved honor. The photo is just gorgeous!
    Unexpected blessings are always a joy.

  5. That a darling photo - Merry Christmas and congratulations!
