    Dave’s garden is having a photo contest, so…I decided to enter the photo of the poppy ‘butterfly’ I saw next to the garden path last year, then found a few more I liked to enter. These are my entries…so far!

    There are many subject categories, for example, Annuals, Scenery or Pets and you can enter two photos per category. Each first-place category winner will receive a free one-year subscription and a 2011 calendar featuring the winning photos from each category.  Why not try it? 

    Here are the details:   Dave’s Garden Photo Contest 

    What is Dave’s garden?  It is a huge gardening website, hosting a large plant database with comments and photos by members, PlantFiles and other tools to use like Garden Journal, to keep records and notes on the plants you purchase and grow. I found it by searching online for information on how to grow certain plants I bought. There are very active forums on a large number of subjects. The ones I check often are California Gardening, Trash to Treasure and Garden Art. Fun!

    Update: Results came in on November 15 and unbelievably, Maggie’s photo won second in Pets and the milkweed pods won second in Mushrooms, Fungi and Seed pods category!    Wow.


    Sue Langley, a passionate gardener and photographer lives and gardens with her husband and Corgi, Maggie on 7 acres just south of Yosemite, Zone 7 at 3000 feet. She also manages the Flea Market Gardening Facebook page and website.

      Sue, I just recently discovered your blog on Blotanical and am enjoying it very much. I do a “Garden Blog of the Month” feature on my blog, http://jeansgarden.wordpress.com/, where I review and recommend blogs to my readers. I just wanted you to know that yours is one of two blogs I’m highlighting this month. My “Blog of the Month” post just went up, and your blog will be highlighted on my sidebar throughout November. -Jean

      Thank you, Jean. I hope anyone can be encouraged to go ahaead and try a new lifestyle. We moved from the hectic life in Southern California where there was so much traffic, air pollution and more and more housing projects adding to the commotion, to a peaceful quiet mountain side where we have to travel 45 minutes to ‘civilization’. We miss being able to get to a large store within 5 minutes, but the benefits are wonderful…fresh air, wildlife and enough room to stretch and spread out. Our goal is to neaten and groom up our place and build paths so we can walk around and enjoy our little spot of natural beauty. Thanks again for your review!
