I have a photo contest for you to vote on, and a photo contest for you to enter.
You all know about the Organic Gardening Reader Photo Contest, don’t forget to cast your votes for one of the 10 finalists. I’m also happy to let you know I’m guest judging the Gardening Gone Wild “Picture This” contest for September.
When Gardening Gone Wild’s Fran Sorin asked me to come up with a theme for this month’s contest, I looked around and thought about what I’m photographing right now. Here’s what I wrote her:
Summer is ending, and I’ve been racing around the gardens storing up spots of color before it is officially autumn. Oh, the lettuce will be germinating soon and my fall flowers will be blooming, but I’m not quite ready to let go of the summer.
Since it’s such a gloomy day on the east coast, I thought I’d show you this photo from our gardens last September. See, saving all that color helps on a rainy day.
