Are you gathering images for next year's Washington Gardener Magazine Garden Photo Contest yet? Remember our rules: photos must be taken within this calendar year and in a garden-setting within 150-miles of the US Capitol building. We are looking for garden images in ALL seasons.
We will start accepting the next garden photo contest submissions on January 1, 2014, but you will kick yourself if you are not taking, gathering, and sorting your garden images through out 2013 in preparation for it.
Every year I hear from people who wish they'd started collecting their images earlier and missed out on the contest entry deadlines. This year, I'm giving plenty of advance notice and will repeat the reminders every few months.
For a little inspiration, here is a link to our 2013 winners:
You can also view the winning photos on display now through August 25 at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, VA.
