SAVE THE DATE for the opening reception on Friday, June 10 from 5-7pm at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens. The show features the 17 winners of the 2011 Washington Gardener Magazine Garden Photo Contest. The reception is open to the public and you are encouraged to bring along family and friends. The photo show will then run from June 11-August 9 at Meadowlark.
BTW, are YOU gathering images for next year's contest yet? Remember our rules: taken within this calendar year and in a garden-setting within 150-miles of the US Capitol building. We will start accepting the next garden photo contest submissions on January 1, 2012, but you will kick yourself if you are not taking, gathering, and sorting your garden images through out 2011 in preparation for it. Every year I hear from people who wish they'd started collecting their images earlier and missed out of the contest entry deadlines. This year, I'm giving plenty of advance notice and will repeat the reminders every few months.
