Fall Foliage Fiesta!
Thanks to all of you who enthusiastically participated in the Fall Foliage Fiesta. I had a lot of incredibly beautiful entries and more importantly (to me) had a lot of fun opening the entries and hearing from all of you who entered. I had a team of volunteers do the voting for the most beautiful and it is my privilege to announce the winner is....(drum roll)....PAM WYLIE! Pam is a retired para-professional from CMS. She and her husband (a retired National Park Ranger) are long time nature lovers and entered the contest with enthusiasm and incredible entries. I must say there were some serious rivals from Vermont-dwellers, but in the end, Pam's two entries won a tie for most beautiful. In addition, a late entry from Pam was a 14 inch maple leaf from Yosemite National Park in California! This leaf is amazing and arrived safely in Grenada in a 16"x 20"envelope! However, since Pam already won most beautiful and because I'm a bit biased as contest judge, I am going to declare the beautiful Emily Bolt (who happens to be my niece) the winner of the biggest category with her home made 26"x 26" leaf.
