2020 Garden Photo Contest Winners



Here are the 17 winners in the Washington Gardener Magazine 14th Annual Garden Photo Contest. There were close to 220 photos submitted in this year's contest from 26 entrants. I know our expert judge had a Herculean task picking out the best of the best! It was great to see several first-time entrants place highly. Many of these photos come from the photographers own home gardens, while the majority of the rest of the images were taken at public gardens in our region.

Note that what you are viewing online here is a low-resolution version of the photo images. Winning images will be published in the next issue of Washington Gardener magazine and as large format prints in a local photo exhibit this spring/summer at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, VA.

The winners were announced live during the Washington Gardener Seed Exchange on Saturday, February 1, at Green Spring Gardens in Alexandria, VA.

Congratulations to the 2020 Garden Photo Contest winners and thank you to all who entered!

  4. This is how my acquaintance Wesley Virgin's story launches with this shocking and controversial video.

    You see, Wesley was in the military-and shortly after leaving-he unveiled hidden, "SELF MIND CONTROL" tactics that the government and others used to get everything they want.

    As it turns out, these are the EXACT same methods tons of famous people (notably those who "come out of nowhere") and top business people used to become wealthy and successful.

    You've heard that you use less than 10% of your brain.

    That's really because the majority of your brainpower is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Perhaps that conversation has even taken place INSIDE your own brain... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's brain about seven years back, while riding a non-registered, trash bucket of a car with a suspended driver's license and with $3 on his banking card.

    "I'm absolutely fed up with going through life paycheck to paycheck! When will I finally succeed?"

    You've been a part of those those thoughts, ain't it so?

    Your success story is waiting to start. You just need to take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.
