I've had the hardest time with this.
I struggled and procrastinated.
But the deadline is looming.
What to choose.
ARGH, how to pick just one?
All right, if I must I must.
Here is my selection for entry into the
Gardening Gone Wild
Picture This Contest-April 2010

The Green World

There are rules.
I have followed them.
I think.
It's my first time after all.
I hope I didn't make any mistakes.
I hope I chose wisely.

What happens next is up to the JUDGE, Rob Cardillo.
Click this to see his newly designed website.
It's absolutely beautiful and inspiring.

At times the camera sees what the eye doesn't pick up.
I didn't notice that little green fellow who was sitting
on the anemone petal when I took the picture.

Look at the 'Queen's pretty face.
New to my garden is this Helleborus Double Queen.
I think she looks like 'Phoebe'.

This bud looks like it could be the star of
Little Shop of Horrors.
"Feed me, Seymore, feed me!"

Spring is blooming.
Let the plant sales begin!
Here is just a sampling of the many:
Florabundance is this weekend. One of my favorites.
Master Gardener Plant Sale is next weekend.
Where the tomato plants fly off the shelves early and quickly.
I went to the Pre-sale party last year and it was fabulous.
No huge crowds, first picks on great plants, and
excellent food and beverages.
Lake Wilderness Arboretum Plant Sale is held on
May 7th, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
If you want native, unusual, inexpensive plants,
this has been a great one to attend.

I hope spring brings good things to you and your garden!
And now I'll be bringing something good
to feed Audrey II.
