Voters had a big decision to make and the votes were close, but in the end the Most Outstanding Planter Contest winner rolled to a clear victory.

Congratulations to Thrifty Foods at Royal Oak, whose ingenious shopping cart planter swept the competition, and helped raise $1,200 for the VCM during this year’s Mother’s Day Musical Garden Tour.
