The Winners

A shade later than planned I’m afraid, but at last I can, with pleasure, announce the winning entrants in each category as follows:

Is There Anybody Out There? goes to Esther

The Favourite Way of Wasting Time award goes to Shedworking

The Adam Pasco Award goes to Frankie at her Veg Plot

Proud Parent - Fuggles for the dancing frog beansprout photo

Vegetable Matter - Bifurcated Carrots

What’s New Pussycat - Wilb at Big Sofa, since especially as his presence is, like most sensible cats, occasional and at his own convenience

Inky/Green Fingers - Blogging at Blackpitts

We Are All in the Gutter - VP at Veg Plotting

Crash Bang Wallop goes to Cleve West’s poppadom photograph

The Jeeves award goes the Monty Don, the Lord Of Cord

One again deepest thanks to everyone who took part.

If this were on TV, I would at this point break into a rather awful rendition of “Wind Beneath My Wings”.

I love you all.

The Garden Monkey

I'm not sure that I love you but I am happy to give you a firm handshake.

Thanks for organising these awards. I hope they become an annual event in the run-up to National Shed Week.

Wheeeee! Thank You :D

That's my acceptance speech and I promise not to cry like Gwyneth Paltrow.

Congratulations to all the other winners and commiserations to the losing nominees.

Roll on next year!

Well, then, we can all be thankful that this isn't TV, can't we?

I am really NOT that big on the whole competetive thing, but this I love.

Keep your tongues in your cheeks, folks--

Thank you Fork'n Monkey

Oh! Good! You're 'Open'.

I came yesterday to thank you for the 'Anyone Out There' - award but only 'team members' were allowed to say anything.

But . . . anyway . . . thank you.

I'm chuffed.

I don't quite know why I'm as chuffed as I am - but I am.

I hate that James Alexander Sinclair. I am the Sir Gregory Parsloe Parsloe to his Lord Emsworth.

Just to show everyone the 'quality' that led to my award, I've celebrated by writing a new poem...

Hope the mention in the sidebar for ESTHER IN THE GARDEN is ok.

Let me know if not.
