Hi everyone! Sorry about the delay in posting the results. I had this post mostly done Wednesday and then got interrupted and it's been open, half-done on my computer till this morning when I got a minute. Our apologies again for the delay. Laura and I both had unexpected things come up but we finally got the photos judged. Here are all the photographs and at the bottom is the winner's name. Everyone did a great job and the photos and stories were a delight to go through. I'm sure you will all enjoy them!
Entry 1, Pauline:
Spring is coming and Little Darling Rene'e is planning her flower garden. She has purchased flower seeds and planted them in seedling boxes. The little seedlings are ready to transplant. Little Darling consults her gardening books and gets ready to prepare the garden bed. Soon she will have lovely flowers.
Entry 2, Joy:
My girls Samantha and Bessie Bell went out early to get started on their garden planting. Unfortunately, the garden plot has very thick weeds from all of the rain we have received this year in northern California. So, Samantha picked a bouquet of weeds of course. After a lot of work, the girls decided to take a break. Bessie Bell thinks that she will just buy her carrots this year although, I'm not so sure about Samantha. If either girl turns around and sees what is lurking behind them, I'm sure they will both be scrambling back inside quickly.
Entry 3, Kelly Selzle:
Aislin loves to help out in the garden. Lilacs are her favorite, but today we were potting herbs and veggies. Barefoot and enjoying the sunshine after all of the rain we had this spring.
Entry 4, Michele:
Pay attention now…. first we have to dig lots of little holes, and then we can plant the seeds and water our garden. Then soon, we’ll have fresh veggies to eat for dinner!
Entry 5, Michele:
I think over there would be a great place for your very first garden. I’ll teach you how to dig the holes and plant the seeds, and later on, we can water the seedlings….. What? What did you say? WHAT is your naughty little brother up to now???
