I found this little gem on the giardinipiscine website while I was looking for something else (that’s one of the wonders of the web). It looks like an azalea of some sort, but it’s the size (or lack of it), not its ID, that gives it juice.
A bonsai in hand…
… might be worth a $100 gift certificate from Stone Lantern.
It doesn’t have to be small…
… but, small enough to be held up by the fingers of one hand. The winner won’t necessarily be the smallest tree, but rather the tree that we feel is the most unique. Size could be a factor (like the one above) but doesn’t have to be.
What to do
Send us a photo of a bonsai that you are holding in, or on, your fingers and not touching your palm. The best way is to link it in our comments below. If you have trouble with that (some people do), you can email an attachment to: email@example.com. Either way be sure to include your name. If you want, you can say why you think your tree is unique.
1.The photo must show your hand with the fingers holding up a bonsai. If it can’t be held up with the fingers of one hand, it’s too big (save it for another contest). Any information you want to include with the photo is good.
2. When ten people have sent in their photos (one per person), the contest will be closed (so don’t wait too long). We will announce when it is closed.
3. I will pick the winner in consultation with two friends (their identities will be kept secret as they are lacking in character and would be susceptible to even the smallest bribe).
4. Imagine that all the disclaimers that you’ve ever seen with any contest are in this space.
5. The winner will receive a $100.00 gift certificate from Stone Lantern.
Don’t worry if it’s ugly, and don’t be upset if you don’t win…
… there’s no accounting for taste. Especially the taste of my two friends.
