Hi,

Well is was also S is for Slow Start but since then there were some lovely pictures in this competition, and I would like to thank everyone who entered.

I liked Rod's entry with three Ss, Chris's scarlet Gymnocalycium, also Dave's Sulcorebutia tarabucoensis and Syslvia's Puna subterrranea.

But the winner is Roy with his Stunning picture of a South American cactus (Echinopsis atacamensis pasacana).

Over to you Roy.

Best wishes,
Sheila
