  • JUNE 2011 PHOTO CONTEST

    Posted on June 2nd, 2011 Pam 47 comments

    June 2nd already—so time for another contest.
    Thanks again for all of those that entered last month, this month should be much bigger and better.
    The winner receives a new 7 inch HD Television, worth $75. (this is really a great little TV!!!!)
    Pictures of the TV will be posted next week.

    NOTE: The subject this month is ‘IN THE GARDEN’. Types of garden pictures are: flowers, fruits, vegetables, people in the garden, blossoms, lawns, beautiful yards and garden layouts.
    Only one picture of each subject may be submitted. Only enter one subject once.

    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, June 2, 2011 and goes until June 30, 2011.
    3. Here is the tricky part. Do not duplicate subjects, send only one picture of each subject. For example, if you have five pictures of tulips, send only the best picture you have. Only one picture of a pumpkin, one picture of a flowering apple tree, and one picture of a group of lilies, or a single lilie, 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. Your pictures are safe with me, I will ONLY use the images to judge the contest.
    7. Here is how to submit a photograph. Use this June 2nd blog to submit your entries. Just add a caption 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!!!!!
    11. Breaking any rule will disqualify you for that entry and that day.
    12. Any picture that has been used in a prior contest CAN BE USED AGAIN !!!!!!!!

    Good luck everyone, please tell your friends and family to enter.
    Thanks!!!!!!!!

    • [Insert creative photo title here.]

      Thanks for entering Mahon!!!! I love the way you composed this picture. The apple blossoms have fuzz on them, very cool !!

    • Anna enjoying a pumpkin in the garden 2010

      From Pam: Anna looks so young there, she is growing up fast. Great picture.

    • One of the tulips from your garden! 😉

      From Pam: This picture really looks good, I have never seen a tulip composed this way. I love it!!!!!

    • Amaryllis – usually these are Christmas flowers, but I procrastinated planting it and it bloomed in May. 2011

      From Pam: At least your’s bloomed!!! The color of these are really red!!!!!

    • I’m pretty sure these are a type of small white daffodil.

      From Pam: Love the composition of these daffodils, great job Cindy!!

    • Violets are starting to bloom next to a snowbank – April 2011. Even though they are still blooming (June) and are much more beautiful and covered with blossoms, I am entering this picture because it shows their personality.

    • A tree in my front yard… 🙂

    • Appreciating ‘natures’ garden. Bri in wild sunflowers.

    • The tulips this year were amazing! I wish they lasted longer.

    • PHOTO #1
      My favorite tulips picture 2010

    • This picture is of Gene and his dad having a fun moment in the yard. But the reason I posted this picture: check out the apple tree in the background. We have enjoyed the fruits of that tree for many years. 1976

    • Harvest time is the best time!!! 1979

    • The peonies were so beautiful this year – 1984.

    • My friends peony garden. They go around the perimeter of their front yard and porch. Gorgeous! Fragrant too. This year they bloomed later than usual due to the cold earlier spring weather we’ve had. This picture was taken just this evening 06/11/11. Thats my daughter Jess and friend in background enjoying them.

    • Bouquets for Memorial Day. Mom always worried about the flowers being all gone by Memorial Day, but we always came up with some beautiful ones. 1987

    • Julie Baldwin

      Sometimes the best way for Anna to help in the garden is to play next to the garden while mom and dad do the dirty work. Planting time is a great time for a pool party.

    • We went to a zoo in Logan when I took this photo of an unlikely subject.

    • Wildflowers on Beartooth Pass (Northeast entrance of Yellowstone Park)1987

    • In January 2008, when it was cold and snowy here, the flowers in Panama were beautiful.

    • Look! I’m submitting!! When it’s cold and snowy here, the trees are blooming in Arizona.

    • A spider eating a bug, yummy!!

    • We saw flowers in Panama that we never knew existed.

    • I bought this “Lipstick Plant” before my mission, and it blossomed twice before it died. This was the final blossom.

    • The lilacs are georgeous this year – probably the prettiest I have ever seen. 2011

    • Julie Baldwin

      A garden is a perfect place for a party. Even if it is pouring down rain and you are covered in mud.

    • I took this photo of a Cornelia Rose while I was visiting a friend in California. This was taken during a light rain shower.

    • Iris after a rainstorm 2011

    • These are last year’s “Gorkins” I was telling you about at the show. This is what happens when you throw your old pumpkins and gourds into the garden in the Fall and let them go at it the next Spring.

    • There are always plenty of these in and about my yard. The grandkids like to pick them (in their flowering stage) and bring me a bouquet. And every kid will pick them in their seed stage and blow the seeds to scatter in the wind. 2011

    • So delicate. Wish I knew what they were! If anybody does let me know. Again, in nature’s garden…

      Is that OK Pam? I am a big hobbyist of natural photography and photograph mostly wildflowers on the many hikes we take.

    • These strawberries volunteered in my fire pit – they actually look better than the strawberries in the garden. Where did those seeds come from? 2011

    • Wildflower. Photo #4…

    • I took this picture when I visited Temple Square with my parents. I’m not sure what to call it, other than “Jagged Tulip.”

    • Stacking tomatoes at Pam’s birthday party – Sept 2010. That was a different game.

    • Day lillies – I love lillies, just wish they bloomed all summer. 2011

    • I was lucky enough to catch this hummingbird and exotic flower on a family trip to Sea World.

    • During downtime from the garden, we still enjoy doing things in the yard. 1990

    • My mom always had a green thumb and could grown anything. This is one of her flowers.

    • Why do we always want the season we’re not living in?

    • Corn ready to be canned for the winter 1996

    • Everyone joins in to help with the harvest 1995

    • Mom called this a little yellow rose. I am not sure of the correct name, but it sure dresses up a bouquet. 2011
