    Oh! I’m surprised but no matter which plant is victorious, they are all beautiful! Thank you for doing it.

    It’s a fix! I guess the acceptance speech when you present the award will be a bit wooden (groan)! Though I must admit that photo of the flaking bark emerging from a mass of Ophiopogon (?) is rather stunning.

      Haha John made me chuckle, I won’t paper it over though 😉 I think that’s what sung in its favour

    What?!? That is . . . well, . . . okay I guess. It is just not what I expected. Perhaps all those intriguing flowers are not so intriguing to an audience that can grow many of them more easily than I can.
