The Isle of Wight News's judges have been out and about for the past two weeks examining all the window-boxes that have entered this years competition.
As usual, the competition has been fierce with some amazing window boxes, but there can only be one Windowbox Winner. All of the entries are available for viewing on our Wondrous Wight Windowbox web site (www.www.iw), but there can only be one Window-box Winner.
Last year's winner, Rosie Turdbottom, 76, of Ventnor put in another excellent display this time around, with her Pansies In Bloom display (not pictured), depicting the Isle of Wight's tourist features picked out in tulips, however, she has been pipped to the post by this year's winner, April Shouers, 622, of Shildon.
April's Dog in A box display (pictured) outside her house on Back Street, Shildon, had the judges cooing in appreciation, even if the dog in the box in the Dog in a Box display attempted to bite Jeremy Andov's hand off, the effect was still as cutesy as a bucket full of nettles.
Third place this time around has gone to Colonel Heapy, 56 of Ryde with his Window Box (also not pictured), which is Windows made entirely of box bushes. A stunningly innovative use of box buses if there ever was one. The judges only marked it down as it the only application it would run was Word.
