The photos here are by frequent contributor Bob Nixon who wanted to show that even on a bleak, gray winters day there is natural beauty to be photographed in the garden. I hope his pictures inspire you and that I'm flooded with entries in the next week.
We have 3 categories -- close-ups of garden plants, garden landscapes, and garden creatures. There will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd winners in each of these categories plus one overall grand champion. That makes 10 winners in all. Right now, the odds of wining are VERY Good - hint, hint.
