I'm declaring mine non competitive since I only really put them in just to get it started and as I have had to set the following months theme twice it is time somebody else came up with new ideas for next months theme. :smile:

Thanks Dave. I agree it is becoming difficult to find an original subject, hence my slightly "off the wall" idea for this month's competition. Looking back I discovered that I've been the winner four times! I'll judge the entries tomorrow and then it's over to the winner to decide on next month's subject.

There has been a distinct lack of contributors this time but that hasn't made the job of choosing a winner any easier. Jim and Sylvia's Crassula celia were impressive but I have decided that Chris L's collection of photos of Gymnocalycium bruchii brigittae P214 gets first prize. Over to you for next month's subject Chris.

Thanks Rod.

I've created a theme for March.
