February Mid-Winter Photo Contest

IMG_6981

Hey Snap Happy Garden Photographers!

Every season, we provide a photo contest for gardeners to submit pictures of their garden. As a year-round garden store, winter is an exciting time for us. Soil beds are being prepped, seeds are being planted, hellebores and primroses are popping color into planters and garden beds.

There’s no theme, just have fun! Photos can include outdoor garden beds, planters and other wintertime wonders.

Submission deadline is Monday, Feb. 16th. First-prize winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to our store! (Perhaps a new pair of gloves, another row of primroses, etc.)

The Low Down (or the Rules):

  • No experience or skill necessary
  • One photo per submitter (only one submission please)
  • Make sure the photo is in .jpeg or .png format
  • Send to Audra at audra@garden-spot.com
  • Include your name, number, and email with your submission

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Audra with the email provided.

Good luck and happy snapping!

Congratulations! The Winner of our ‘Signs of Spring’ Photo Contest

Signs of Spring

This is such an exciting time of year. Now that the snow has melted, and the sun has returned, it’s hard to stay inside for any length of time. Giddy customers and employees alike have been browsing our plant ‘candy’ and snapping up seeds, compost and other garden goodies.

We really enjoyed the entries for our ‘Signs of Spring’ photo contest. From the little tiny bird footprints in the snow, to lushly petaled primroses and viburnum poking out from the winter melt…you guys really ‘brought’ it.

After some deliberation, we chose the photo entered by Sandra Schulze of the melting icicle.

Congratulations Sandra! However did you capture that tiny little droplet?

Thanks to everyone who participated in our photo contest this time around! And stay tuned to Facebook. This Monday, we’ll be announcing a new photo contest!
