Neli.....how the F are any of us supposed to stand a chance now!

Think I am going to have to visit "Tannie" Avril for some favouritism tactics!

I lost all my pictures recently, going to have to take some new ones, will wait until everything looks a little better with the garden but will take some pond pics soon!

Great idea Cossie, and a very worthwhile prize!

Absolutely great idea Cossie and Avril.

I hope this will attract all the members of the forum, especially the new members. Guys and dolls please don't be put off. I know Costa and Avril well enough to tell you everyone stands an excellent, fair chance and only the best pond and garden will win! With them it is fair play no matter what and many old clients will vouch for it.

So come on guys, don't be shy, you have nothing to loose and may the best guy....or Neli win. Laughing Very Happy Smile

No offence Cliff, only trying to put everyone at ease should they think there could be favouritism, you know Costa, he would rather case you than give you someone Else's fish that they ordered, should you try. Laughing bounce

Hi All,

It seems to me that most people have been discouraged from entering this competition, after seeing Nelli's Large garden. We have decided that there will be two competitions -- a prize for large gardens and a prize for smaller gardens. It is still early days and we all have to get over winter, so cheer up guys , the competition only closes end November. The winning gardens will be judged on their overall charm and appeal, and guys ........this time size does not matter !!! lol! lol! lol! .
Will post photo and video of the other fish to be won.

And please remember you have to post a video of your pond and garden as well . : Very Happy Very Happy

Costa.
