  • A DAY IN THE GARDEN

    Posted on April 2nd, 2011 Pam No comments

    This is a flat of garden cress, it is spicy, kind of like water cress. They were planted about 10 days ago.

    A few of my tulips, I can't believe how good these look.

    These are Crown Imperial Lilies. They are kind of rare flowers, these are yellow. They are fast growing and will bloom in about a month.

    Below are a few pictures of one of my favorite Spring flowers, Crocus.


    These yellow Crocus really brighten up a Spring flowerbed.


  • APRIL PHOTO CONTEST

    Posted on April 2nd, 2011 Pam 80 comments

    Congratulations to Julie!!!! She lost 4.5 pounds during the March weight contest!!!!!!
    I lost 3 pounds, but gained 3 pounds during January so I just broke even. Wish me luck for the coming gardening months when I should lose lots!!

    Julie won a 8″X10″ canvas wrap, using a picture of her choice.

    So on to the next contest.
    This April contest is a photo contest, winner receives a 8″X10″ canvas wrap. These wraps are really cool. I will have pictures of them in the coming weeks.

    HERE ARE THE RULES.
    1. You can enter each day if you would like, but send ONLY ONE PHOTOGRAPH EACH DAY.
    2. The contest starts today April 2nd and goes until April 30th.
    3. Here is the tricky part. Do not duplicate subjects, send only one picture of each subject. For example, if you have five children, send only one picture of each child. Only one picture of a tulip, only one picture of the Tetons, you get the idea. So this means, pick your favorite picture of each subject and send it, I only want your best.
    4. ONLY PICTURES TAKEN BY YOU ARE ELIGIBLE, pictures entered by ‘Frank’ must be taken by ‘Frank’.
    5. You can’t submit for someone else, everyone must enter their own pictures, using their own email.
    6. All pictures will become the property of Pam Olsen and further use by the submittee is prohibited……….JUST KIDDING!!!!!!!!!! I will ONLY use the images to judge the contest.
    7. Here is how to submit a photograph. Use this April 2nd blog to submit your entries. Just add a comment in the comment box, then attach the image using the browse button in the box below the comment box, then click ‘submit comment’.
    8. Bribing the judge (ME) is prohibited, but you can always try.
    9. Remember, enter only one picture per day.
    10. Because this is a family site, keep your photographs child friendly!!!!!

    Please have fun with this, I am looking forward to lots of images, the canvas wrap picture is a very cool prize and worth $75.
