Contest 37: Leaves

Postby CoronaCactus » Mon Aug 31, 2009 7:59 pm

This one is geared towards the succulent fans. Although cacti also have leaves ;)

The theme is leaves. Pretty self explanitory. Texture, shape, color...anything you feel is interesting about that particular leaf. Only stipulation is that the leaf must be prominent in the photo.

To the winner goes, A $10 gift certificate towards any CoronaCactus Nursery purchase. (Plants, tools, labels, etc)
NOTE: For members outside of the USA, sorry but only non-plant prizes can be awarded.

Deadline for submissions will be Labor Day - Monday September 7th, 2009

Good Luck to all!!

OK, I'll kick us off... Since I pretty much only grow cacti, I've got few leaf pictures available. I did take this pic just for another post recently, so I'll include it here.

Austrocylindropuntia cylindrica


Didn't know I'd be submitting it for a contest or I'd have put a nice background on it. :?
