#WEPff winners for the August GARDENS challenge! Please pop in and say congratulations!

Hello Everyone!



Thanks to all who participated during the 2016 August GARDENS WEP challenge. The entries were truly amazing and made reading a pure pleasure. What creativity on the theme. Obviously we love our gardens and see all sorts of possibilities for ideas within.  If you still haven't finished reading, please continue, using the DL links on the previous post.

And once again, we thank Olga Godim for her excellent badges which we've now used as the winners' badges!

We value each and every story submitted to WEP, but there is the excruciating choice of choosing just one winner amongst the many of winning quality. Yolanda and I agree that is the hardest part of this job. Here is a quick overview of the entries (in  no particular order): 

The entries that fired our imaginations and made the long list are:


Elephant's Child
Olga Godim
Pat Garcia
Kate McManus
Nilanjana Bose


So without further ado – The Winners!
  
THE WINNER OF THE
2016 WEP August GARDENS CHALLENGE IS:

Nilanjana Bose!
with her amazing poem. If you haven't read it already, pop by the link in Nila's name above.




As one commenter said, "'This is astounding poetry. Rich, rich imagery that sweeps the earth, past, present, and future. By the second stanza I'm enthralled ... "and thrown them like javelins straight and hard,
when the meek come to leash the elite;'" Ann Best.

Congratulations Nila!

Please accept the winner's badge and display on your blog with a link to your excellent story.
