Thanks, Y'all! Here's my secret--in early October I throw the seeds in a bowl and mix them up for a few minutes. I broadcast the seed by hand onto bare raked ground. I tamp them down gently with the rake and keep them moist for a couple weeks. In the spring its a wild flower meadow. Thanks again, Judy, Darren, Suzy, Joy, Sharon, Colette, Gene, Char, Claudia, Carolyn, Patricia and Darren. You folks are so kind!

Thanks, Patricia, Evy, Kathleen, Leanne, Birdie, Claudia and Darren. It seems to be feast or famine with my entries and the judges rarely pick the ones I really like so I just go with the flow.

Hi everyone and thanks for all your kind congrats. I found a PC that I could jump on long enough to pick up my e-mails and peek at the June winners. What a great bunch of photos and I'm honored to be amoung them :0) Let me include a blurb that my son sent me about my oldest grandson, Josh. If anyones if Philly Saturday night and likes rock music here's the scoop:
Subject: Free Concert at the TLA in Philadelphia this Saturday Night
Category: General

Arms of Orionfeaturing Josh Grigsby (Jim's son) on drums has been
selected
as one of four finalists in Y-100's "Big Break" contest. Their demo was
selected as one of the four best from over 500 submissions made to the
station. The finalists will perform in a free show at the TLA (Theater
of
Living Arts) on South Street in Philadelphia this Saturday night.
Various
music industry judges will select a winner who will play the side stage
at
the Lollapalooza festival at the Tweeter Center on July 27th.

The free show at the TLA is this Saturday night. Doors open at 6 PM and
Arms of Orionwill be playing last at about 9:30 PM. If you're free and

2 nd Place ! Good enough FOR Ya' Me Compadre !

I read your Comments - Waaaaasaaaaayyy above. About TRYING to win - about YOUR Favorites falling by the Wayside - now "Going with the Flow", etc.
I CAN relate, and whole- Heartedly Concur !
Now when I View MOST of the (300 + ? ) "Finalists" on ANY month - I am astounded ! SUCH Excellence. OUTStanding Stuff.
They are what I call "Photographer's Photos".
I am HUMBLED and amazed at Sooo Many BEAUTIFUL - Excellent works - Ya - WOW !
However...
Usualy 1 or 2 out of 10 "PLACE" Winners - I think
WHAT ? This ? ... is BETTER Than (a Certain ) Other ??!!??
And, Call me what U will, But I will bet MY $100
to Your DIME that at least One of the "Judges"
( WHO ARE They? ) is a Woman. There are Far Too many HORSE - - and Simple Kid, or Baby Shots Winning!
And whille I am BITCHING - Well FIRST Asuume I send 99 KUDOS to B P - 'Cuz I DO. BUT ...
I do not think it is Right, or Fair - that ONE person should ever win MORE THAN ONE "PLACE"
Award - in the SAME - ONE Month !
With Over 6,000 entries per month ?? NOT Right!
(was that MORE than "2 Cents Worth ? )
Do Not feel you need to Reply to this.
I would be SICK of TYPING - if I were you!
Rock on ! ... Sharpshooter

Thanks again, Jean! Michael, as far as I know the judges never see the name of the entrants until after all the finalists and winners are picked. So I guess it is conceivable that one person could win all the places :0) That would be something if it happened. But over all I think they do the best they can having to deal with so many entries each month. I can't think of a better way of doing it but it would be intersting if there was a peoples choice each month.
