We got second place for a grand total of $225.00! Nice job everyone. As a side note, Paul also got a second for his 3x9 garden scene, that's a whopping $50.00! Yes, we were up against the Water district group to the left of us. Hummm, some mixed feelings about that...their over sized trees for example...but they only shorted us by $25.00. I do think a letter should go out pointing out the regulations, and asking if it is necessary to follow them or not...just so we will know what rules are to break, and how much in points that would cost us... hummmm...

Great job all you hard working, strangely creative cactifiles!
