WE HAVE A WINNER!


The southern region of California is an irrigated desert. Our falls aren't nearly as spectacular as the splendorous East Coast displays. In fact, most of America puts on a better show than we do. I do have a Liquid Amber in my front yard that stands about 20 feet from a regal palm tree and a flowerbed of tropical foliage and succulents. It sheds its autumn hued leaves against a backdrop of evergreens.

So, I find my autumnal solace with words, illustrations, and photos. Hence, I sponsored the DIAMOND POETRY CONTEST so that I could hear from the poetic souls of those who experience fall differently than I do.

I received 18 comments regarding the 6 Diamond Poetry entries. 16 of those comments included a vote for their favorite poem. May I add that most of the voters loved ALL of the poems and were challenged with selecting just one. Each poet painted wonderful images.

Finally, with a total of 5 votes, the winner is MISS SHABBY of SHABBY IN THE CITY! She may choose between a $10.00 Target or Starbucks card! Way to go Miss Shabby!
