Botanical Stills

Welcome to botanicalstills. The natural approach to icon challenges. This icon challenge community is all about trees, flowers, buds, blossoms, vegetables, fruit, seeds, leaves, roots, nuts, berries, herbs, tendrils, shrubs, vines and all other things botanical.


I'm endlessdeep. Your other mods are lavanille and willow_lives. We rotate challenge duties in this community. One of us will host a challenge from start to finish then it's the next mod's turn.

I created this community and ran it for a little while before adopting it out to dear_prudence who did a wonderful job maintaining it and running the challenges for several years before I adopted it back from her.

I am currently looking for one more Moderator. If you are interested please leave me a message HERE.
